Our next opportunity to present this project is Saturday Sept. 27th at the South Dakota Sheep Growers Annual Convention. Larry is scheduled to speak from 11:15-noon at the Days Inn Convention Center in Brookings. Mike Hansen and the Button Boys are planning on helping out. The families who struggle with HD are the ones who can truly motivate sheep producers to participate. These families instill urgency to this project when they share their stories. The Button Boys and GRI will also host a booth on Saturday. On Sunday (28th) at 8:30 AM we have the opportunity to host another tour of the farm. Sunday afternoon is the Sioux Valley Chapter HDSA meeting at the Sanford auditorium in Sioux Falls. It is a place to meet more families and learn more about HD.
Larry has been busy spreading information about GM1. On Sept. 3rd he spoke to Veterinarians at the Pipestone, MN Veterinary clinic and on Sept 4th he spoke to a Parkinson’s support group in Brookings. As Dr. Hersch put it “the path forward to the clinic is right in front of us, its just gonna be one step at a time.”
