RN’s at HDSA Centers of Excellence Assist Huntington’s Families

Another member of the HDSA Centers of Excellence multidisciplinary care team is the registered nurse.  The HDSA Center of Excellence at the University of California, San Francisco has a nurse, Cecilia Alagappan who is part of the team at the HD Clinic.

She has wide experience with the care of those with neurodegenerative disorders, and has been a leader of our Center of Excellence since its inception. She provides critical expert and practical advice to families dealing with common Huntington’s disease (HD) issues, including coping with behavioral symptoms like irritability or loss of motivation, weight loss, or problems with swallowing.

Cecilia also assists patients and physicians navigate the health care system to obtain needed medications.  As with all the disciplines on the multidisciplinary care team, their goal is to help HD families have the highest quality to their lives on their HD journey.
