Vignettes needed for new edition of HD facts

Dr Oliver Quarrell is compiling the 3rd edition of HD facts. This book is designed to give information to families and carers and is published by Oxford University Press. 

Are you able to write up to 500 words on one of these topics to be included as a perspective or experience of a patient, carer, or someone at risk? There will not be a payment for the entry but your contribution can be acknowledged if you wish.

  • Behavioural and emotional aspects of HD
  • Juvenile HD
  • Predictive testing
  • Testing in pregnancy
  • Participating in clinical trials

Please send your  up to 500 words to

Dr Quarrell cannot guarantee that every entry will be used but the idea is to publish a perspective from families as part of the book. If a lot of entries are received then Dr Quarrell will write to you and ask if they can be published separately on a website.
