Anxiety and stress in spouses and children of people with Huntington’s disease.

My name is Julia Shaner and I am a second-year genetic counseling student at Arcadia University.  I am currently working on a thesis project entitled “Stress and anxiety levels in children and spouses of patients with Huntington’s disease.” The purpose of this project is to compare levels of anxiety and stress due to caregiving and due to being at risk to develop Huntington’s disease.

In order to study this question, I am inviting spouses and children of people affected with HD to participate in a survey through SurveyMonkey.  This survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete, and has been approved Arcadia’s IRB.  If you are interested in participating in the survey, please click on the following link: If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or my faculty advisor, Lisa Kessler.


Thank you for your consideration.
