For Family Members of Those with ET … A Clinical Study at Yale

Yale University is conducting a study to better understand the lifestyle habits of essential tremor (ET) families. The researchers are looking for brothers, sisters, and children of people with ET. In order to participate, individuals must not have ET, be at least 40 years old, not have Parkinson’s disease or dystonia, and be willing to undergo a 2 hour health evaluation in your home. This will include, questionnaires, a formal assessment of your health and diet, a videotaped neurological exam, and a blood draw.

This is a nationwide study, and the researchers will travel to meet with you. There are no costs associated with your participation; in fact you will be compensated for your time.  If you are interested or have any questions, please call (203) 785-6169 or e-mail
