In 2020, the world’s 1st International Young Adults Conference for 18-35-year olds impacted by Huntington’s Disease will be held by the Huntington’s Disease Youth Organization (HDYO)!
This is the first conference of its kind. HDYO will be working with partners to ensure that many young adults old from all over the world can attend the event. Anyone impacted by Huntington’s disease age 18-35 (this includes partners) can attend, if you live on planet Earth or if you are a professional who works in the Huntington community.
The organization hope to be able to host as many as 500 over a period of 3 days. This will be the largest gathering of young adults in the Huntington community.
The youth organization will have a scholarship fund open to help those who need funding to attend.
