INTRODUCING HDSA DISABILITY CHAT WEBINARS
HDSA Disability Chat is designed to provide FREE information, resources and support to both persons affected by HD and their caregivers who are either starting the disability process or have already filed but been denied benefits by the Social Security Administration as well as HDSA social workers who are assisting HD families with their disability applications in their region.
Each month, Disability Chat will feature a topic of interest for either HD families or HD social workers. Each segment will include a 45-minute presentation followed by 15 minutes for discussion with the audience. All webinars are recorded and can be found on the HDSA YouTube channel for later viewing and to serve as an enduring resource.
HDSA Disability Chat is hosted by Allison Bartlett, HDSA’s Manager of Disability Programs and a disability attorney who specialized in representing clients with rare, chronic conditions, like Huntington’s Disease. She is a passionate advocate for HD families throughout the disability process and in the community, attending HD advocacy days on Capitol Hill and giving disability trainings at multiple HD Education days. Allison holds a J.D. from the University of Cincinnati College of Law and a BA in international affairs from James Madison University. She is admitted to the Virginia Bar.
