PodcastsEpisode 14 – Dr. Bruce Compas (Stress and Families Coping with Chronic Illness)

Dr. Bruce Compas is a Professor of Pediatrics and an Investigator at Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Research on Human Development. In November 2019, Dr. Compas gave a presentation titled “Families Coping with Illness: Implications for Huntington Disease”, that covered research into stress, coping, and resilience for families dealing with chronic illnesses. Stress can be significantly magnified for HD families and caregivers, which makes the research and science behind it all the more important to understand and be aware of. Dr. Compas joined the HD Insights Podcast to help provide a sense of connection during the current pandemic, and to share strategies related to stress that may be helpful for members of the Huntington disease community.
