The IETF facilitates educational programs in order to educate patients, caregivers, healthcare providers and the general public about essential tremor. Programs may cover the following topics: the diagnosis process, current treatment options, research, support groups, assistive technology, and more. Review the listings below for more information. You can also check our events to learn about other events and support group meetings.
ET Education Forums
The IETF has postponed all in-person educational events due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In past years, IETF staff has hosted four forums each year, in large cities throughout the U.S. to share diagnostic techniques, treatment options, current research and more. Based on feedback through a online survey, we made the decision to create some online events to share with everyone. Take a look at our Virtual Education Events below, and click on the links to listen and watch.
Thank you to our corporate partners who helped make these virtual education events and podcasts possible!
