HUNTINGTON DISEASE (HD)
There are multiple challenges that a diagnosis of Huntington disease (HD) brings to families. Our mission is to improve the lives of patients and families affected by Huntington disease. In addition to our expertise in the diagnosis and medical management of HD and related disorders, we also provide assistance to people at risk for HD, HD families, and caretakers.
The Lindsey-Saemenes HD Center of Excellence provides social workers, nutritionists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists on the HDSA COE monthly clinic day, to assist you in finding answers to your questions.
The HD clinic has been involved in numerous clinical trials over the past decade and we remain focused on developing better treatments for the various manifestations of HD and, ultimately, a cure for this neurodegenerative disorder.
Our local HD Center of Excellence holds an exclusive HD clinic on the fourth Wednesday of each month at Veracity Neuroscience, 5050 Poplar Avenue, Suite 511, Memphis, Tennessee 38157. Call (901) 443-9170 or email us at to schedule an appointment.
Our HD Center of Excellence clinic is staffed by Dr. LeDoux (Neurologist with subspecialty expertise in Movement Disorders and Neurogenetics), Sara Wilkinson (Clinic Coordinator), Missy McGowan (social worker), Nurse (Samantha Brannon), Dietician (Amy Bourdeau), Physical Therapist (Rusty Middleton), Occupational Therapist (Sheila Harris), and Speech/Language Pathologist (Julia Doss).
