Texas teen appears in new video from the International Essential Tremor Foundation
Date:5/9/2013

Lenexa, KS (PRWEB) May 10, 2013

As part of its ongoing mission to broaden awareness and understanding about essential tremor (ET) among the medical community and the public at large, the International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) has released a new video centering on the emotional and psychosocial aspects of the ET, a neurological disorder that affects approximately 10 million people of all age groups in the United States, and millions more worldwide.

Featuring individuals who represent a wide range of age and experience, "Essential Tremor is More than a Tremor" presents personal stories about the challenges of life with ET. One of the six individuals featured in the film is Hannah Anthony, a 16-year-old high-school sophomore from Fort Worth. Please contact the IETF to arrange an interview with her.

“The IETF is a voice for those with ET,” says Catherine Rice, IETF executive director. “We hope that this brief video will help members of the medical community and the general public begin to better understand the ways that tremor affects the whole person—physically, psychologically, socially, and emotionally.”

Visit YouTube or the IETF website to view the video and to learn more.
