CME4HD Online

HSG members are world experts in caring for individuals and families impacted by Huntington disease. HSG wants to share their knowledge with as many health care professionals as possible so families can more easily find care in their own communities. The popular CME4HD program provided at HSG’s annual event is now available online, anytime, anywhere – for FREE. This program was planned and implemented by the North American Center for Continuing Education, LLC (NACCME) and the Huntington Study Group (HSG). This program was made possible, in part, by an independent educational grant from TEVA Pharmaceuticals.

Referral Program

We need your help to spread the word in the medical community so that, ultimately, HD patients can receive better care in their own communities between subspecialty appointments. If you refer to the program the largest number of professionals who complete it by June 30, 2018, we will provide you with a transferrable scholarship to attend HSG 2018: Unlocking HD in Houston. This includes airfare (up to $500 domestic, $1200 international), two nights in Hotel ZaZa, and a travel stipend. Referrals can be made by anyone in the HD community, including HSG members, family members, industry partners, and advocates. You may choose to transfer the scholarship to another attendee. Those who complete the program will also be eligible for a scholarship, chosen at random.

If you refer someone to the program, make sure they put your name in the question, “Who referred you to HSG for this online education course?” when setting up their profile. Or have them contact Anne Van Dusen directly at anne@hsglimited.org. This is how your referrals will be tracked.

Please also encourage them to finish the program. Only those who have completed the entire program by June 30, 2018, will count toward your referrals. And, only those who have completed the program by June 30, 2018, will be entered into the random drawing for a scholarship for themselves.
