Huntington’s Disease Program

Designated a Center of Excellence by the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA), our interdisciplinary team has extensive experience working with families throughout the course of the disease.

We are committed to providing high-quality, comprehensive Huntington’s Disease (HD) patient care and clinical research.

About Huntington’s Disease

A rare neurological disorder, HD makes slowly progressive changes to nerve cells in the brain. This eventually causes changes in memory, thinking, behavior, and involuntary body movements known as chorea. Each child of a parent with HD has a 50 percent chance of being born with the altered gene that causes HD. While there is currently no cure, there are effective treatments for symptoms, support for the entire family, and ongoing research to treat and cure HD.

What We Provide

Assessment, Treatment, and Support

Our team provides diagnosis and treatment of symptoms, focusing on quality of life. We offer neurocognitive testing, psychosocial support, planning for the future, and connection to community resources.

Genetic Testing and Counseling

Genetic testing to predict or confirm an HD diagnosis is available. Our testing process follows HDSA guidelines, which includes genetic counseling.


We collaborate with community providers experienced with HD. Our partners are experts in physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and nutrition services.


Our commitment to understanding, treating, and curing HD includes conducting research on many aspects of the disease. We invite patients to participate in the observational and clinical trials being conducted at our center.
