Monday, February 6, 2012 - (6:30PM - EST) It's time for The HD View ~ Ask Dr. Goodman Show! Tonight we will be talking about the forth component of Huntington's Disease which our incredible special guest suggests is stigma.

Dr. Lavonne Goodman states Huntington's disease is commonly characterized as a trilogy of overlapping disorders that include cognitive, motor, and psychiatric components, but advocates that we should add HD stigma to the list. The stigma part of the HD has great negative impact on many, but it is not well studied or recognized for the toxic part it plays through every stage of this disease.

Perhaps, if we thought of stigma as an official part of HD, it might get the attention it deserves.
