Information evening on HD

On May 28 the Huntingtoncentre in Lund hosted an information evening on Huntington's disease at the Biomedical Centre in Lund.

70 guests came to listen to Åsa Petersén, professor and senior consultant in psychiatry, and Håkan Widner, professor and senior consultant in neurology, who talked about the latest research in the HD field and different symptoms and treatment possibilities.

The visitors were also given the opportunity to meet staff from the Huntington-team from the Neurology clinic at Skåne University Hospital in Lund. Katarina Holmsten from the patients' organization, Riksförbundet Huntingtons sjukdom, was also present, informing about the society's activities.

We are very pleased that so many came and took part in this evening - thank you all!
