Rochester, NY – March 11, 2019

Today the Huntington Study Group (HSG) announced the restructuring of its Education Committee into four distinct committees aligned with the organization’s overall strategic plan for educational programs. The four committees that will lead the HSG’s current and planned education initiatives are: Member Education, Provider Education, Family Education, and Annual Meeting Education.

The HSG has selected several longstanding members of the organization that are well-known experts in their field for an initial 3-year term. Dr. Mary Edmondson has agreed to chair the Provider Education Committee. Jody Goldstein will chair the Member Education Committee. Dr. Martha Nance will serve as chair for the Family Education Committee, while Dr. Lauren Seeberger will take on the role of chair for the Annual Meeting Education Committee.

“The Huntington Study Group is very fortunate to have so many dedicated professionals working on Huntington’s disease as members of HSG – like Dr. Edmondson, Dr. Nance, Dr. Seeberger, and Ms. Goldstein,” said Dr. Andrew Feigin, HSG Chair. “We believe that working collaboratively, but in more focused teams will help enhance the quality of our educational offerings, and move the HSG educational agenda forward.”
