During the COVID-19 lockdown, we will be hosting a series of live chats on a variety of youth topics. To participate/watch the live chats and learn more about upcoming chats, follow us on Facebook.
May is HD awareness month. Due to social distancing, this year is a bit different but we encourage you to #lightitup4HD blue and purple around your own home, or consider some sidewalk art with #chalkitup4HD. Use our youth specific hashtag #ichoose to share the story of what you choose in your HD journey! We are also compiling a video on this theme. Submit your videos to Megan Robertson by May 10th to be included, and check our Facebook page for what to include in your video. Visit the HSC #lightitup4hd page for more information and to get involved.
Postponed: YPAHD Day 2020
YPAHD Day is a one-day conference hosted by youth for youth who are affected by Huntington disease. Due to the uncertainty related to COVID-19, HSC has postponed the 2020 National Conference and YPAHD Day to Fall 2021. Dates are being confirmed but the event will still be held in Niagara Falls, Ontario, prior to the HSC National Conference.
