Can’t attend the 27th Annual HDSA Convention? Then HDSA will bring the Convention to You

This year, for the first time, HDSA will be providing a live  of the Opening Ceremony, the Research Keynote and Clinical Trials Showcase, and a selection of workshops so you can participate from your home, or organize your own “satellite convention” — gather together with other members of your local HD community and watch as a group
