East Texas Medical Center will offer a free Knowledge First Forum on movement disorders with Dr. George Plotkin, with the ETMC Neurological Institute, noon April 4 in the ETMC Pavilion in Tyler.

The phrase “movement disorders” refers to a group of neurological conditions that cause abnormal voluntary or involuntary movements, or slow, reduced movements. Two common movement disorders are Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor.

Dr. Plotkin will provide an overview of both disorders that will include discussion of symptoms, treatments and the differences.

Lunch will be served. Free parking is available next to the ETMC Pavilion, 801 Clinic Drive, Tyler. The gate and building will open at 11:15 a.m. and the presentation will begin at noon. Please pre-register by calling 866-333-ETMC and press 6.
