North Carolina Chapter
News & Announcements
Welcome to the homepage of the Huntington's Disease Society of America, North Carolina Chapter. We are a chapter of the Huntington's Disease Society of America, a national, not-for-profit voluntary health agency.
The purpose of our chapter is:
• To help individuals affected by Huntington's Disease and their families through support and services
• To educate both the public and health care professionals about Huntington's Disease
• To promote and support research directed at discovering a treatment and ultimately a cure for Huntington's Disease.
While there is still no cure for HD, today there is more hope than ever that we can beat this disease. Until then, our chapter will strive to provide support and sustenance to our HD families, knowing that while research provides hope for the future, we must provide care for our HD community today. We have become an active community, educating ourselves, sharing information, and advocating for ourselves and our loved ones.
