After I returned from the 2019 Huntington’s Disease Society of America Convention in Boston in late June, I began wondering how and what the partners (sponsors) of the event contribute to the Huntington’s disease community.
Huntington’s disease is a rare, fatal, genetic brain disorder that has all the symptoms of ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimers at the same time. There is NO CURE.
On the back of the Convention Guide Book is a list of some of the partners. Today I’ll post about LUNDBECK. lundbeck.com/us/about-us
Insight from Lundbeck’s Patient-Focused Approach to Business:
“Lundbeck offers financial support, and does it with a real understanding of what patient communities value and need: Patient groups are often strained for financial resources, which is why it’s not only important that we offer support generously, but in places where it can make the biggest impact. From many years of listening to patients, we have seen time and again how important it is for people to be able to connect with each other at patient group events and conventions. That’s why we introduced annual scholarships to help patients and their families attend the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) Convention.”

Thank you to Lundbeck Pharmaceutical Company for offering scholarships to Huntington’s disease (HD) families so they are able attend the Annual HDSA Convention. It’s so important for HD families to connect with the HD community so they do not feel alone.
