Join us this March in raising awareness for Essential Tremor, the most common movement disorder. It is estimated to affect up to 4% of the population over the age of 60. This tremor occurs with actions, like writing, eating, drinking, and typing; and can range from annoying to socially embarrassing to severely disabling.
Dr. Claudia Testa leads the ET program at VCU PMDC and has formed an interdisciplinary team to address patient and families needs.
Dr. Testa has also established clinical research projects to increase understanding of the full range of symptoms of ET, or phenotypes, and discover the potential genetic causes and risks for ET.
