Byron Health Center hosts a monthly ‘open’ support group for those affected with Huntington’s Disease, as well as their family and friends.
We have returned to meeting on the first Thursday of each month in 2019 except for July, which will be the second Thursday of the month due to the 4th of July Holiday.
The next meeting is Thursday, February 7th, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. 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 continue throughout 2019 including: March 7th, April 4th, May 2nd, June 6th, July 11th, August 1st, September 5th, October 3rd, November 7th and December 5th.
Byron Health Center continues to partner with the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) and the Department of Behavioral & Social Sciences at the University of Saint Francis (USF) to make the support group possible for the northeast Indiana area. Dr. John J. Brinkman, Ph.D., HSPP, Chair of the Department of Behavioral & Social Sciences at USF, who returns from a few months away to moderate the support group, can be reached via phone at 260-399-7700 ext. 8425 or via email at email@example.com . Dr. Brinkman will be joined by USF Graduate Students Adam Gayer and Emily Lautzenheiser.
