What is Huntingtons

What is Huntingtons  ? (A4 Brochure)

Huntington’s NSW & ACT is proud to provide information and support, research funding, and advocacy for everyone touched by Huntington’s Disease (HD).  

The core belief or our organisation is that we can change perceptions of HD by sharing information.  

This brochure is one easy way that you can help people to understand more about HD and hopefully even start conversations. 

If HD is a part of your life or family, please take the time to share your experiences and knowledge. This brochure is ideal for printing at home or work. It gives a very concise overview of HD, who is at risk, and the impacts. It also has guidance for people thinking about going through genetic testing for HD. 

Leaving a brochure in your work kitchen may not seem like a big deal. But every person who is better informed about HD and its effects is a potential supporter and ally. 

Donations over $2.00 to Huntingtons NSW & ACT are tax deductible.
