Tremor Support Group

The Tremor Support Group is open to anyone suffering from tremor caused by Essential Tremor (ET) or Parkinson's Disease. ET is a neurological disorder which may affect the hands, head, legs, and/or voice. The Support Group also welcomes all caregivers (parents, spouses, friends) as well as anyone interested from the medical community. We will serve as a forum for education about tremor, various treatments available, and coping with daily activities. The group is open to the entire community, is free of charge, & is non-denominational.

Please contact Shari at for additional information. We hope you'll join us!
