Welcome to the website for Tennessee affiliate of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America. We are a statewide affiliate of the HDSA, striving to offer support to those affected by Huntington’s disease throughout the Volunteer State of Tennessee. We align ourselves with the mission of the national HDSA: To improve the lives of people with Huntington’s disease and their families.
To further those goals, we currently offer a support group in Middle Tennessee, educational events throughout the state, and a variety of fundraising events in all parts of the state.

Vanderbilt Children's Hospital - Free - Learn about the latest HD research, clinical trials, talking with kids about HD, and more.
