Some of the sessions will be recorded and uploaded to ypahd.ca and YPAHD social media channels, so if you are unable to attend, you can still take in a variety of the presentations after the event. Whether this will be your first YPAHD Day or you are a YPAHD Day veteran, we can’t wait for you to experience the power of sharing experiences with other youth (ages 14-35) who are affected by Huntington disease.

Young People Affected by Huntington disease (YPAHD) Day is a one-day conference designed specifically for youth affected by HD (14-35 years of age). Youth from across the country gather regionally to learn about genetic testing, family planning, caring for someone with HD, navigating relationships, think about event planning during the round table discussions and more! YPAHD Day will be educational, fun and interactive. It will help forge new friendships and strengthen those support systems that mean everything to YPAHD members.

HISTORY OF YPAHD DAY

In 2012, our youth chapter created a one-day youth conference (YPAHD Day) in conjunction with the HSC National Conference. In 2015, we hosted YPAHD day in 3 cities across Canada! YPAHD Day continues to grow and now meets annually, either at the HSC National Conference, or at the regional days. YPAHD day attendees appreciate the opportunity to connect with others who understand their experiences, breaking the sense of isolation, alongside much needed education, support, and a few fun and crazy antics.
