About

Essential tremor (ET) affects an estimated 7 to 10 million Americans and millions more worldwide. Despite its prevalence, it is still largely misunderstood and misdiagnosed. This year, the IETF is thrilled to host its first-ever Essential Tremor Virtual Education Conference — with complimentary registration for ET patients and their families.
