June 16, 2012 Halifax, nova scotia
Please join Dr. Ed Wild, neurologist and co-founder of HDBuzz.net for a riveting presentation that is full of wisdom. Optimizing life is the primary focus of Dr. Wild’s message. He will explore the good news and how we can prepare for the journey; what we can do to make a difference now, and what we can do to make the most of the support available – maximizing our independence.
Research and clinical care in HD are constantly moving forward. Without effective disease-slowing treatments it can easily feel like nothing is happening. Until that breakthrough arrives, there is still plenty we can do. “Optimizing Life” with HD means staying active, informed, and involved. Join Dr. Wild as he helps us to see what we can do and how we can do it.
