Jeff sat down with Jared Husketh, Director of Clinical Services at HD Reach, to speak about Huntington ‘s disease. He described the illness as – first and foremost – a family disorder, since it doesn’t affect just one individual, but the entire family.
Jared speaks about the goals of HD Reach and the services it provides to the 6,000 North Carolina residents afflicted with this neuro-degenerative illness. He also addresses the advanced healthcare planning needed, as people can live 15 to 20 years with the disease.
