Celebrity support included: Mario Lopez, Scott Porter, Drew Brees, Joe Smith, the L.A. Angels, Vincent Piazza, Lisa Genova, Jake Dowell, Jerrod Niemann and many more! HDSA Expands Centers of Excellence Program In 2016, the HDSA Centers of Excellence program expanded to 39 Centers from 29 in 2015 — a 25% increase in the reach of the program. The HDSA Centers of Excellence share an exemplary commitment to bringing more comprehensive care to more HD affected families across the United States and will have more ‘boots on the ground’ with locations in 30 US states. HDSA allocated $1,092,250 to the Centers of Excellence program which is a 38 percent increase in funding from the $790,000 awarded in 2015. “The expansion of the HDSA Center of Excellence program to nearly forty clinical care centers means that thousands of new families will have more resources and support in their fight against HD,” said Louise Vetter, HDSA’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of the HD community, whose efforts make these awards possible, and thankful for the dedication and commitment to world-class care that our HDSA Centers of Excellence provide.”
