Members of our Huntington’s Disease team featured in an important awareness video to show the impact that cognitive impairment has on people affected by Huntington’s disease and members of their family.

Funded by Huntington’s Disease Association, the short film interviews someone with Juvenile Huntington’s disease and someone who grew up in a Huntington’s household.

Healthcare professionals, including our own Huntington’s Disease team discuss the impact that cognitive impairment has on people and how early intervention and an understanding of the disease is paramount.
