Webcast is offered on common neurological disease staff
Updated: 2014-07-24 10:25:12
Those interested are encouraged to hook up to a free live webcast of a seminar hosted in Nashville, Tennessee by the International Essential Tremor Foundation. The seminar will take place on Saturday, Aug. 16, 2014, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Questions will be solicited from the audience.

Essential tremor, or the most common neurological disorder and for which there currently is no cure, affects about 10 million people in the U.S. Often misdiagnosed as Parkinson's disease, it often is characterized by rhythmic, involuntary and uncontrollable shaking of the hands and arms during movement, making daily tasks such as eating, drinking and writing difficult, if not impossible.

“The IETF is dedicated to offering hope to those affected by essential tremor,” said Catherine Rice, IETF executive director. “The Foundation actively works to generate greater awareness of the condition, fund critical scientific research in order to fully understand the causes of ET and offer support to those affected by this life-altering condition. At these seminars people will gain a better understanding of their condition and what options for treatment are available. Hopefully they will also realize, as they look around the room, that they are not alone in this condition; that there are millions all over the world affected, just like them.”
