Did you know March is Essential Tremor Awareness Month? Despite being the most common movement tremor, knowledge about essential tremor symptoms isn’t widespread. This month, why not help spread the word about essential tremor? Here are a few easy ways that you can get involved:
Put up printable posters for fundraising walks
Are you going to one of the essential tremor fundraising walks this month? The fun can start long before the walk itself. You can help recruit participants by printing flyers and posting them around your community. Your doctor’s office, community center’s billboard, or your local library can be highly visible places for people to learn about the walk.
Share essential tremor news through Facebook
If you’re an avid social media user, you can use platforms such as Facebook to share information with your family and friends. An educational blog can introduce others to essential tremor, and teach them something new about it. You can also change your Facebook cover image to spread the word about Essential Tremor Awareness Month. The International Essential Tremor Foundation has already provided an awesome image here.
Donate to an essential tremor charity through Amazon Smile
If you’re an online shopper, you can make the most out of your money with Amazon Smile. Through this service, you can select your favorite essential tremor charity. Every time you make an eligible Amazon purchase, .5 percent of the purchase price will automatically be donated to your charity. You can learn more about how this works and sign up here.
Raise awareness for support groups
Have you joined an essential tremor support group yet? There are many across the country, and they can be a great way to connect with peers who understand life with essential tremor. You can also offer support to others with essential tremor by inviting them to the group. A little support can go a long way.
We hope you’ll have opportunities to get involved during Essential Tremor Awareness Month! It’s a time to connect with others you may not meet otherwise and spread knowledge about essential tremor symptoms. If you have questions about your own tremor symptoms, you can reach out to one of our educators. They are happy to offer support and answer any questions you may have about symptoms or treatment. You can talk to an educator today by calling 844-NO-TREMOR.
