Thurs 19 August 12.30pm IHMRI’s Gabrielle Phillips and Huntington’s NSW ACT’s Robyn Russell – Huntington’s Disease
Huntington’s Disease is a rare, inherited disease that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. The disease can cause movement disorders, cognitive disorders and psychiatric disorders and there are different stages to the disease. This webinar will explore what Huntington’s Disease is, who is affected, how it is diagnosed and what the symptoms are.
Tune in to hear from our local expert Associate Research Fellow Gabrielle Phillips from the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute (IHMRI) about her research into better understanding the disease and chemistry changes in the brain. Robyn Russell from Huntington’s NSW ACT will also be online to tell us about the support services available to those living with Huntington’s and their families. Robyn and Gabby will be available to answer your questions.
