Letter from the President

Letter from the President

By Barry Kahn

From the Spring 2003 issue of Hopes & Dreams, newsletter of the Illinois Chapter, Huntington's Disease Society of America.

It is with deep regret that I announce the resignation of two Illinois HDSA board members, Kathleen Shannon, M.D., and Pat Govas. We thank them for their past service and hope that they will be able to rejoin the board in the future.

Dr. Shannon's departure has necessitated postponing our efforts to raise funds necessary to open a Center of Excellence. Our national office will do their best to include us in their business plan for the 2003-2004 fiscal year, if they are accepting applications for new centers at that time.

One of Pat Govas's responsibilities was the publishing of our quarterly newsletter. Therefore, this will be the last newsletter for this fiscal year. We hope to have a replacement for Pat by October 1st or sooner. If someone is interested in taking on this responsibility, please contact me.
