Upcoming Events

Film Screening

HDAI together with Irish filmmakers Amanda Spencer and Brian Moore are hosting a special screening of Dancing At The Vatican on Thursday May 23rd at the Lighthouse Cinema, Dublin. This powerful, short documentary film follows  a brave few South American families, who despite the poverty and isolation of their lives, journey to Rome to call for an end to the fear and stigma surrounding Huntington’s disease; that it no longer be a hidden disease.  The film comes at a time when the need for HD families to participate in research has never been more important.

Following the screening, we have on our Q&A expert panel: Dr. Ed Wild Associate Director and Lauren Byrne Research Fellow at Huntington’s Disease Centre, UCL,  Queen Square Institute of Neurology, London and Dr. Niall Pender, Enroll-HD study site Lead Investigator and Principal Clinical Neuropsychologist at Beaumont Hospital, Dublin.

Complementary tickets are available on request by emailing reference Film Screening
