We invite all those diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease, their families, caregivers and individuals who are at risk to attend our Support Group meetings. Meetings provide a supportive environment where participants can share concerns, challenges, and successes. In addition, participants can lend emotional support to one another and lessen feelings of isolation. Meetings are always free to attend and all locations are accessible. Your involvement is important for our support groups! At a meeting you might learn about a community resource, discover a new research study or hear from a guest speaker. Please consider joining us!

For further information about any of the support groups, please contact Katie Dykman at (440) 742-1284 or kdykman@hdsa.org

Cancellations may occur in the case of inclement weather. We will attempt to notify everyone with advanced notice by email. If you are concerned that a meeting may be cancelled, please contact Katie Dykman at (440) 742-1284 to confirm.
