On Saturday, October 12th, Connecticut Support Group Leader Helen Moser and her husband visited the Rhode Island ET support group at the invitation of RI Group Leader Rick Anderson. Rick led a lively discussion about a recent webinar conducted by the International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF). A handSteady cup with a rotatable handle was available at the meeting, and everyone was able to test it out. The new LiftWare spoon was also discussed. [Click here to learn about this LiftWare product.] Sharing 2 hours with this delightful group of others living with ET was a fun, educational, and heartwarming experience. We left feeling very excited about holding our first meeting in Connecticut!
Everyone living with essential tremor is welcome to attend …including family members and friends! The date and location of our first meeting will be announced shortly.
