The European Huntington Association Conference Stronger Together kicked off with president Astri Arnesen and her husband and board member Svein Olaf Olsen welcoming 250 participants in Sofia, Bulgaria. Over a period of three days, Huntington’s disease was on the agenda. 

Eminent speakers had travelled from all over Europe and the United States to update the crowd. Many important topics where brought into light. In addition to sessions, workshops and discussions – the EHA conference also had a focus on physical activity through the movement “HD on the move“. Every morning the participants met outside the hotel, ready to walk or run through the streets of Sofia.
