Last week, the HDSA Northern California Chapter Board members met with Dr. Vicki Wheelock. Lisa Kjer, social worker, Kathryn, Huntington’s D Clinic RN at UC Davis Medical Center, HD Clinic, to brainstorm how to increase the Chapter’s community disease outreach and fundraising. https://www.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/huntingtons/
The Chapter is dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease and we do this by generating dollars to help in the fight against this horrific disease that has no cure. Through our fundraising efforts the Chapter supports/funds the HD Clinic, seven support group facilitators and the HD social worker.
