The Huntington’s Victoria 2020 community conference is being held as a virtual event this year on Saturday December 5 and Sunday December 6.
The online event will include presentations about the latest international and local research, including updates on ground-breaking clinical trials. The scientists behind HD Buzz will join the conference for a special Q and A covering all the big developments in Huntington’s research.
A special presentation will also be made by Roche on ground-breaking developments in HD research from the discovery of the gene to the biggest ever clinical trial, Generation HD 1 which is underway across the world right now.
Along with international research, there will be sessions on Saturday December 5 covering living well with the impacts of HD and making choices as a young person in a HD family.
On Sunday December 6, there will be sessions on building a HD support team, NDIS plan management and making a difference in the community. Local researchers will also give presentations on the work that they are doing.
Entry is free for all people who register
