Huntington’s Disease Support Group @ Byron Health Center Eakin Family Room

Byron Health Center continues to host a monthly ‘open’ support group for those affected with Huntington’s Disease (HD), as well as their family and friends.  The next meeting of 2020 will be on Thursday, February 13th, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.  This meeting will be on the second Thursday (as opposed to the usual first Thursday) of the month due to a scheduling conflict.  Any members of the community who have, or who have been affected by, HD are invited to attend the support group held on the Byron Health Center campus at 12101 Lima Rd in Fort Wayne in the Eakin Family Room.  The monthly support group meetings will then continue on the first Thursday of each month throughout 2020: March 5th, April 2nd, May 7th, June 4th, July 2nd, August 6th, September 3rd, October 1st, November 5th and December 3rd.

Byron Health Center has partnered with the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) to make the support group possible for the northeast Indiana area.  Topics of discussion are open for suggestion, but will include a new story introducing the world to the Vaughn family and a report on the devastating impact of HD on the professional soccer refereeing world.  Registration details for upcoming HD research webinars and other events will also be shared.
