30 years have passed since the HD gene discovery in March 1993. The European Huntington Association (EHA) acknowledges every single day the impact that the discovery of the mutated gene that causes Huntington’s Disease (HD) has had on the global HD community. At the same time, the EHA realizes that the younger generations from HD families are often unaware of the importance of this scientific breakthrough to so many aspects of their lives. 
Therefore, the EHA / Moving Forward team is launching an online campaign with interviews to key HD family members and professionals who will share all the stories and details about this discovery.
