Our Annual Event

Announcing the Location for HSG 2019!

About Our Annual Event

Since 1993, the Huntington Study Group (HSG) has hosted an annual, internationally recognized forum for training and education of Huntington disease (HD) researchers and for presentation of new research findings and treatments to the worldwide community, plus much more…


Get your chance to present to and network with the world’s leading Huntington disease (HD) researchers and health care providers by submitting your abstract to the Peter Como HD Research Symposium. The symposium, which focuses on clinical HD research began in 2007, presents valuable findings and information to both clinicians and HD patients and family members through poster sessions and platform presentations.


Add to your knowledge with CME4HD! You have a unique opportunity to take a continuing medical education course in-person, specifically designed for you. The goal is to have many health care professionals trained so that families can more easily find care in their own communities. This course is designed to teach you how to care for and manage individuals with Huntington disease (HD) and is appropriate for all healthcare professionals, including social workers, nurses, neurologists, and others. Attendees will gain the knowledge, tools, and resources they need to provide excellent care to families impacted by HD, and will learn from world experts in HD care. Don’t pass up this amazing opportunity to learn more about Huntington Disease! This is a FREE program, but registration is required.


Focused on families, this is a full day event on Saturday of the annual meeting, covering HD advocacy, caregiving, and research. You’ll have an opportunity to ask HD experts your questions. Some highlights include: A keynote presentation by a leading voice in the HD community. One of our HSG Investigators will moderate a panel of people discussing their experience participating in HD trials. ALL ARE WELCOME, including individuals with HD, families and friends impacted by HD (including youth), and health care providers. This event is FREE and open to the public, but registration is strongly encouraged.
