Issue 92, March 2006
It is with great fondness that we farewell our friend and colleague Beth Gordon who has retired after many years supporting the Auckland Huntingtons Disease Association. Beth was our association’s link to the Huntington’s community and the community’s link to the health service provider’s networks.
Beth has dedicated many years to this complex cause and her knowledge and understanding of the disease and the networks of resources that are available to assist those in times of need has proven invaluable to us all.
As well as running regular seminars and training programmes, Beth also played a major role in the development of the role of the association and was always lobbying for the support of professional service providers and professional caring agencies.
We are sure that all those from the Auckland and Northland areas who have been touched by Huntington’s and been helped by Beth will join us in wishing Beth a very happy and long retirement.
Chairperson – Huntington’s Disease Association (Auckland) Inc.
