HSG 2016 | Nashville TN

About HSG 2016 Annual Meeting

Over the past 20 years, HSG has hosted an annual, internationally recognized forum for training and education of HD researchers and for presentation of new research findings and treatments. The 2016 annual meeting drew a record number of attendees – almost 500 – including 39 scholarship recipients, 19 members of advocacy organizations, 66 industry sponsors and partners, and 130 HD community members. It offered continuing education courses for HSG members, the revamped CME4HD education program for regional clinicians, and specialized programs for experienced HD clinicians and investigators. Saturday featured the HD Research Symposium and an afternoon dedicated families and loved ones impacted by HD.

HSG 2016 Sponsors

Planning, organizing, and hosting the annual meeting takes nearly a year, requires the efforts of dozens of committed people, the contributions from several dedicated committees, most notably the Education and Nominating committees, and HSG’s small staff of five. Only some costs of the meeting are covered by sponsored research, so HSG relies on donations and sponsorship to make the meeting possible.

HSG thanks all of our sponsors (at right) for their dedication and commitment to seeking treatments that make a difference for HD by making this meeting possible.
