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. 

Here's a link to more information about this Saturday's symposium on Huntington's Disease in
Riverside at the Mission Inn, Aug 22 from 9am to 5pm:


Ken Vincent has retired. We appreciate the way he shared his expertise with many of our young interns and reporters over the nearly eight years he spent as KVCR's lead journalist and Morning Edition host. We wish him a happy and relaxing retirement as he spends more time in his garden and, as he mentioned, more time on the golf course. Thanks Ken!
