Huntington’s Disease Association Raising Awareness

Huntington's Disease Association

The Huntington’s Disease Association exists to support people affected by the disease and to provide information and advice to professionals whose task it is to support Huntington’s disease families. The HDA is financed through the generosity of trusts, foundations, the statutory and corporate sectors, branches of the HDA, members and friends.
