Understand your risk. Make informed decisions. Advocate for yourself. Support the research.


Your support of research studies, clinical trials and surveys are a critical component of the Mission, to support work that leads to improvements in the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by HDGC. Participation is an interesting and rewarding way to advance research, and often times has a reach far beyond the HDGC Community. When possible results of these studies, trials and surveys will be published on site.

You can help by checking in regularly to discover new opportunities, and by spreading the word to others who may be qualified participants. Please spread the word by sharing information with your medical care providers, family and friends, and posting on your social media pages.
