Turning Point helps you cope with chronic illness

Physicians, therapists, social workers and other professionals at The University of Kansas Health System are committed to caring for the physical needs of Huntington's disease patients. We are also deeply invested in helping the entire family cope with the disease. The hospital has online and community resources for patients and their families.

Huntington Study Group clinical trials

The University of Kansas Health System is one of only two healthcare facilities in Kansas to be part of the Huntington Study Group, a nonprofit group of healthcare professionals dedicated to the care of people with Huntington’s disease. We are dedicated to finding treatments that slow its progression while working toward a cure.

Turning Point

The University of Kansas Health System has partnered with Turning Point: The Center for Hope and Healing to provide support for chronically ill patients and their families battling cancer, chronic heart failure, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), fibromyalgia, kidney disease, diabetes and other diseases. The organization also works with caregivers to give them knowledge, coping techniques and support beyond care traditionally provided in a hospital setting. Here, patients with serious or chronic illnesses find additional services and programs that address the psychological, social, emotional and physical needs that accompany their illnesses.
