Alzbeta Mühlbäck was born in the Slovak Republic, the former Czechoslovakia. She studied in the Slovak Republic as well as the United States and the Czech Republic.

The neuropsychiatric department serves 20 beds for patients with Huntington’s disease. Together with an outpatient HD clinic, the hospital sees around 400 HD cases each year.
The hospital was founded by Prof. Dose in 1992 – a man that became a great inspiration for Alzbeta. “From the very beginning I was very impressed by Prof. Dose and his highly engaged work with HD patients,” she says. The more she got involved in HD, the more she felt related to the patients and their lives. She states that it is together, as professionals and HD affected, that we can cope with the challenges in the best possible way.
