The San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate, one of the 55 Chapters/Affiliates across the U.S., of the nonprofit, Huntington’s Disease Society of America, is celebrating its first year of operation. Despite the pandemic, team members shifted to zoom monthly meetings, virtual events and have developed a Strategic Plan for 2021 to help in the fight against Huntington’s disease, provide Education Days at Stanford & UCSF Center of Excellence, organize outreach projects so HD families can find services to help their family.

On Saturday, January 11, 2020, the first Affiliate meeting was held at UCSF with 22 attending from Genetech, HOPES, community folks, UCSF & Stanford Centers of Excellence, and HDSA social workers/staff.
I want to thank everyone involved in the Affiliate in 2020 for their time and dedication and I’m excited to kickoff 2021 at our first meeting on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. At this first meeting of the year, we’ll be discussing the strategies to implement the 2021 Strategic Plan to outreach to the HD community in the Bay Area.
