Features Health & Wellness Support group for those affected by Essential Tremor meets in Sylva

The International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) is proud to announce a support group for those affected by essential tremor. The meeting will begin at 1 p.m. on Saturday May 17, at the Alliance Bible Church, 501 North River Rd., Sylva. Learn how to cope with your tremor. The group serves individuals in Jackson, Macon, Swain and Haywood counties.

“Essential tremor can be frustrating in how it affects the quality of people’s lives,” explains Ted Kubit, the Sylva Support Group Leader. “This group will offer an informal place where those affected can be themselves. At our group, individuals won’t be asked if their hands are shaking because they’re cold or nervous. They will find support and fellowship among others just like them—others with essential tremor.”

All interested in ET (essential tremor) are welcome; patients, friends, family and health care professionals. Contact Ted Kubit at 828-631-5543 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to RSVP
