York Biology Club hopes to raise awareness about Huntington's disease

Huntington’s disease is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. Laura Ohl, a senior majoring in biology at Penn State York, wants people to know more about this disease and the work that is being done by the Huntington’s Disease Society of America. Ohl, the 2015-16 president of the Biology Club at Penn State York, and other members will take part in the fourth annual Central Pennsylvania Team Hope Walk, set for May 21 in Lebanon, Pennsylvania.
