    I have essential tremor and was interested in coming to the seminar. I saw the information in yesterdays newspaper (4/3/2013)and when I went to register tonight and it is closed. How often do you have these seminars because I would like to come to one of them. Thank You

      We have at least one day-long essential tremor seminar each year. We also host shorter seminars throughout the year that may be of interest to those impacted by essential tremor.
