Update – Joint Essential Tremor Support Group, June 6, 2015

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 12:30pm at Holy Cross Hospital, 1500 Forest Glen Rd., Silver Spring, Md. 20910.

There will be two guest speakers. Their names, organizations, and topics are – Dr. Kathleen Maguire-Zeiss, Georgetown Univ., ET & the circuitry of the brain and Dr. T. Sean Vasaitis, Univ. of Maryland Eastern Shore, Essential Tremor & Tai Chi.   Peter Muller will also give a brief summary of the “Essential Knowledge gaps in the field of ET” Conference that was held at NIH on May 11-12.

You will need to register for this. To do so, please call Peter Muller at 703-543-8131 or one of the contact people at each group – Doris Mapes, Lisa Gannon, Mary Thomas, Barbara McCarthy or Prudy Bradley.
