Rare disease day
29 February 2020
R. Júlio Amaral de Carvalho, 45 - 4200-135, Porto, Portugal
Hosted by CGPP-IBMC, i3S
The Portuguese Association of Huntington Patients joined the CGPP-IBMC/ i3S in organizing an event in Porto to mark this special day. Saturday 29, 9.30 am at i3S we will make the debut in Portugal of the documentary "Absolute Beginners", directed by the French Association "DingDingDong". The documentary, subtitled in Portuguese, makes six personal portraits, in a poetic and sensitive way, about the experience of living with the diagnosis of Huntington's disease.
Following the documentary, we will have a debate that will be attended by three representatives of associated families and different professionals specializing in Huntington's disease (geneticist, neurologist, psychologists, and genetic counselor).
