The Huntington's Disease Society of America Center of Excellence at the University of Iowa is one of 39 Centers of Excellence supported by the Huntington's Disease Society of America.
Our mission is to strengthen the relationship between clinical treatment and research for individuals affected by Huntington disease. We take an innovative approach to integrating clinical services, education, outreach, and research opportunities. Combining these elements is an efficient way to benefit individuals with Huntington disease in a personal way as well as advance scientific efforts in the field of Huntington disease research. We are dedicated to our patients, research volunteers, and their families.
In addition to our clinic, support group, and research, the center serves as a resource for anyone needing Huntington disease information.
A new young adult novel, "Rules for 50/50 Chances," shows what it's like for a young person living in a Huntington disease family. Read our review here.
