The International Essential Tremor Foundation will bring together experts, scientists, patients, and family members for a day of learning about essential tremor.
Lenexa, Kansas – The first ever Essential Tremor Virtual Education Conference will take place Saturday, October, 29, 2022, from 9 AM to 1 PM (CST). Hosted by the International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF), it is open to anyone affected by essential tremor (ET).
The conference will bring together medical professionals, scientists, researchers, and other ET experts to discuss the latest treatments and strategies for living with the condition. The event is free and registration is open now.
ET impacts 7-10 million people in the United States alone. It is a neurological condition characterized by a rhythmic trembling of the hands, head, voice, legs or trunk. It is often confused with Parkinson’s disease, but is eight times more common.
Along with speakers who are nationally known physicians and researchers in the field of movement disorders, the online conference will include roundtable discussions and chat rooms to allow attendees to connect and share information. Clinicians and medical companies will also showcase some of their latest resources for ET treatment and management.
Conference sponsors include: Sage Therapeutics and Praxis Precision Medicines at the presenting sponsor level; Jazz Pharmaceuticals at the platinum level; and Allevion Therapeutics, Cala Health, Boston Scientific and Steadiwear at the bronze level.
“We invite anyone impacted by essential tremor – patients, family members, and caregivers – to join us for our first ET Virtual Education Conference. Our speakers are nationally-known physicians and researchers who will discuss diagnostic and treatment options, research, coping techniques, and much more,” said Patrick McCartney, IETF executive director. “The IETF is the leading nonprofit organization in the world dedicated to providing hope to the ET community through awareness, education, support, and research.”
Muhammad Younas, chief executive officer for vFairs, added, “These conditions are more commonplace than we think, and there is a dire need to highlight them. Conferences like this are accessible and offer valuable insights and solutions for millions of people.”
