As an individual with Huntington’s Disease, a family member, or a caregiver, have you ever struggled to access the medical care that you need? Huntington’s Disease (HD) is a rare neurological disease that has a worldwide prevalence of 5-10 cases per 100,000 individuals. Those affected may sometimes experience long wait times or must travel thousands of miles to reach medical specialists with the ability to provide care for Huntington’s. In this episode of the HOPES podcast, our newest podcaster, Avanti Ramraj, speaks with UC Davis neurologist and professor Dr. Alexandra Duffy about why access to Huntington’s Disease care is so limited and the potential for expanding care to reach all those in need.
Music credits coming soon.
