HDSA Center of Excellence

Our Huntington Disease program has been designated a Center of Excellence by the Huntington’s Disease Society of America. Our team of experienced providers is dedicated to providing interdisciplinary consultations to meet our patients’ individual needs. We strive to integrate expert clinical care with clinical research to advance knowledge in HD.

Our program is one of 29 selected nationwide for this prestigious designation, reserved for programs committed to collaborative, multidisciplinary care for HD affected families.

Huntington Disease (HD) is an inherited neurodegenerative disease. HD is most often thought of as a movement disorder, but it also causes emotional and behavioral changes, and cognitive decline. The symptoms associated with HD usually become more severe over time.  Currently there is not a cure for HD, but there are medications to manage the symptoms.  There are also many other ways to improve a person’s independence and quality of life.
