INVITATION to Huntington's Australian National Conference: 25 May - 1 June 2021

Huntington’s Australian National Conference 2021

Huntington’s NSW ACT is very pleased to announce it will be hosting the next national HD conference as a series of virtual events from 25 May – 1 June 2021.

This conference was originally scheduled for November 2020 but was postponed due to COVID-19. Now it makes sense to go virtual as we have no idea when a real event might again be possible.

As a result of being virtual, we can bring you many more international speakers than we could afford to fly to Sydney for a live event, so we hope this is a small compensation for the mostly later in the day timing of sessions and for not all meeting physically together – always a preferable way to hold a conference.

Experience has shown that 2-hour sessions online with lots of time for questions are more digestible than sitting in front of a computer screen all day. Sessions will also be recorded so once you have registered, you can participate in your own time or re-visit them whenever you want.

We have decided to focus on four key themes:

 Huntington’s NSW ACT would like to acknowledge with thanks the conference sponsorship provided by Roche and also the Commonwealth Government’s National Disability Conference Initiative for its grant. Also thanks to Novacorr for being an exhibitor. We are grateful to Bruce Hearn, extraordinary Woody Guthrie fan, for the introductory music at the start of each session.
