March is National Essential Tremor Awareness Month, an important time to increase awareness about essential tremor and to provide helpful information to those who have or might have ET. The International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) will work throughout March to raise awareness of ET. The IETF has designated Saturday, March 22, 2014, as the specific day on which whose affected by ET and their loved ones can walk for essential tremor in their community to raise both awareness and funds.
The North Alabama Essential Tremor Support Group is scheduled to walk at 2 PM at the Madison Wellness Center. The group will have information available and encourages anyone who has a tremor or who knows someone who may have ET to join the effort. Those interested in participating in this international walk may complete an online registration at essentialtremor.org or may register on-site. Participants need not be registered. Those who do register are to receive t-shirts.
