March is Essential Tremor Awareness Month!


In December 2010, Congress passed House Resolution 1264 officially designating March as "National Essential Tremor Awareness Month."   This Congressional Resolution provides us with a key platform to educate the public about the condition, as well as raise much needed research funds. While 10 million people in the United States have essential tremor, the public still has very little awareness of ET. Because the condition can be treated in many cases, it is important for people to seek help early if they exhibit symptoms. With your assistance, we can reach more people this year.
