Our Meetings

We are a friendly group of people with a mix of ages, backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences who all share a common condition: living with essential tremor as a patient, family member, or friend.

Our meetings provide a safe place to meet others who immediately relate to our challenges …a place to talk, support each other, and be inspired. Through a mix of open/informal discussions and formal/speaker programs, we exchange ideas and successes and learn about new coping techniques, assistive devices, cutting edge research, and emerging medications.

The atmosphere is relaxed, confidential, and positive. Everyone is welcome to share, but nobody has to! Family and friends are also invited to contribute. They, too, live with ET…just from a different perspective! We have very few “musts”:

  • respect and listen to each other
  • remember that what’s said in the group stays in the group
  • ask for help with refreshments, name tags, etc., if you need it
  • oh …and silence cell phones during our meeting

We invite you to join us!

We think you’ll leave our meetings with a smile on your face and find that the ideas you’ve heard and the connections you’ve made will stay with you for a long time!

    • Melvie, please let me know if you’d like me to add you to my email list so you can receive whatever information I send to our members concerning our meetings or other relevant ET information or news. You can do that easily through the Contact Us page on this website. ~Helen Moser

    • Hi Debra,
      If you’d like to stay informed about our CT Essential Tremor Support Group meetings, I hope you’ll either follow our blog or send me an email telling me what town you live in so that I can add you to my email list.
      Kind regards,
      Helen Moser

    • Hi Katy,

      Thank you for your interest in our group! Because members literally come from all corners of Connecticut, our meetings are consistently held from 1:00-3:00 p.m. the first Saturday of every other month (February April, June, August, October, and December) but alternate locations throughout the state. With an average of 50-60 attendees at each meeting, we are limited to towns with large hospital conference rooms that are accessible to non-hospital groups like ours. We have not yet held a virtual meeting, but could opt for them in the future.

      If you’d like to stay informed of future meetings, as well as any ET news that comes across my desk, please let me know what town you live in and I will add you to my email list.

      Kind regards,
      Helen Moser
