Dr Thomas Bird, a pioneer neurogeneticist, informed members of the Lake Forest Park Rotary Club of the devastation of Huntington Disease, a genetic brain disorder that confounds and can destroy its victims.

It usually hits during mid-life. In his book, Can You Help Me? Dr. Bird offers hope and aid "in the Turbulent World of Huntington Disease," as he shares surprising, insightful, challenging, and encouraging stories of patients and their families.

The Rotary Club of Lake Forest Park meets every Wednesday morning at 7:10am for breakfast at LFP Presbyterian Church on 17440 Brookside Boulevard NE.
