Hope For Huntington's Disease To Be Explored At Public Symposium In Riverside Saturday
Huntington's Disease is a little-known fatal neurological disorder that not only affects those afflicted with HD, but also can devastate families who have to be caregivers to the patient as the disease progresses. Huntington's Disease afflicts both adults and children, and there is so far no cure and very few rudimentary treatments. But as HD increasingly comes out of the closet, there is hope for treatments that could come out of research being done here in California and elsewhere. The non-profit group, Help4HD International is holding a public, day-long symposium for people interested in and affected by Huntington's Disease on Saturday, August 22nd, at the Mission Inn in Riverside (click here for more info). In advance of the symposium this weekend KVCR's Ken Vincent re-edited part of an interview he did last December with Melissa Belardi, President and CEO of Help4HD International, and the group's International Affairs Coordinator, IE resident Daniel Medina.
