Essential Tremor (ET) affects 7 million Americans. It is often confused with Parkinson’s disease. If you, a family member, or a friend have ET, you are invited to attend a free meeting sponsored by HopeNET, an all-volunteer, non-profit organization.
This joint meeting of all the HopeNET support groups in Virginia & Maryland will be held on June 6 from 10am until noon at Holy Cross Hospital, 1500 Forest Glen Rd., Silver Spring, Md. 20910.
Our guest speaker will be Dr. Stan Anderson, a neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital. His presentation will be on Essential Tremor & the circuitry of the brain and will occur less than a month after the conference at NIH on Essential Tremor in which this topic of ET & the brain circuitry will be one of the primary discussion points.
