Listen Back: Bloomfield CEO talks Huntington’s Disease with Joe Duffy
When RTÉ listener Pauline phoned Liveline about her fifty-year-old son’s struggle with Huntington’s disease, she sparked a week-long conversation with the nation. The show raised much-needed awareness about the condition and its devastating effects.
Across the week, presenter Joe Duffy spoke with the partners who live with the reality of caring for loved ones with the disease, and with Niall, who has decided to put off getting tested.
Bloomfield CEO Brian Higgins joined Niall on the line to speak about the realities of getting appropriate care in Ireland, and the work we do here as the country’s only specialist facility caring for those affected by Huntington’s disease.
