Stories of Patient Power, by Andrew Schorr

Huntington’s disease is a rare genetic condition that affects nearly 30,000 people in the United States. However, doctors believe there are about 150,000 people with the genetic mutation that causes Huntington’s but have not begun to show clinical symptoms. Dr. Jody Corey-Bloom, a leading researcher at the Huntington’s Disease Center of Excellence at UC San Diego Health System, updates listeners on the latest research and gives people guidance on participating in clinical trials. She offers resources for how patients can learn about different trials and gives listeners a brief update about the latest treatment options available for the disease.
