The Huntington Study Group announced that it is taking the early and proactive step of moving this year’s annual meeting, HSG 2020: HD IN FOCUS, to a virtual experience during October 29-31, 2020. “While we will not gather together this year in-person, we have developed an interesting, novel, and innovative program that will be brought to you anywhere you are located,” said Huntington Study Group Chair Andrew Feigin, MD in an email to HSG members and the HD community.

The Huntington Study Group will hold a highly engaging and interactive virtual online meeting. HSG 2020 will still provide many of the same experiences attendees are used to — but from the safety and comfort of their home or office, which includes opportunities to network and interactive poster sessions, and much more, such as:

  • INTERACTIVE SESSIONS – plenary presentations, panel discussions, with live Q&A sessions sharing the latest in research and treatments.
  • An exciting VIRTUAL FAMILY DAY symposium for HD families to hear from HD experts and community advocates.
  • BREAKOUT SESSIONS and WORKING GROUPS.
  • CONTINUING EDUCATION (CE) credits for attending sessions.
  • Virtual NETWORKING LOUNGES to meet up with, engage and collaborate with colleagues, friends, and experts.
  • A simulated EXHIBIT HALL to engage with representatives from industry and advocacy.
  • An interactive POSTER PAVILION to browse accepted research abstract posters, and engage with poster presenters at scheduled times.

Additional details, registration information, and call for abstracts will be made available in the coming weeks. You can also bookmark our HSG 2020 web page for the latest upddates (https://huntingtonstudygroup.org/hsg-2020).
