Comedy, according to Robin Savage, has power. “In our politically correct world, the comedy stage is still a place for free speech and free expression,” explains Robin. “Even in medieval times, it was only the jester who could speak the truth to the king . . . and live.” Robin should know. She plays the jester and speaks the truth many nights a week as a stand-up comic in the west-central Florida area. Robin has ET.
Now, Robin has a new gig as host of Prescribed Comedy on Comedy Slam Radio. WWW.ComedySLAMRadio.com is a 24/7 Comedy Internet Radio Station playing famous comedians from around the nation and featuring live shows from Veteran Comics to Open Micers, Club Owners to Comedic Writers. Robin’s focus will be how laughter is a therapy that should be taken by everyone. Tune in on Tuesdays from 1-2:00 p.m. EST to get your healthy dose of funny!
Check out last Tuesday's recorded session featuring our very own Rebecca Dye, IETF Communications Coordinator and Support Group Liasion, as Robin's special call-in guest.
Assistance for the Uninsured
By: Laura S. Lehman, Phar.D.
Clinical Pharmacy Coordinator
The IETF routinely takes questions from patients who are unable to afford their medications and don’t know where to turn. According to the US Census Bureau, 50.7 million people (16.7%) were without some form of health insurance in 2009. Even among those with insurance, a significant proportion of patients have inadequate prescription coverage. Patients either have to seek sources of assistance to pay for medications or forego treatments altogether.
There are, however, some resources for the uninsured and underinsured that might be able to help you better afford your meds.
Last chance for Tulips
Looking for better treatment options? Want something new and exciting to happen in essential tremor research? Are you waiting for the day when you can tell your children or grandchildren that essential tremor is a thing of the past and they no longer have to worry about it? We all are.
In order to get these and many of the questions we have about essential tremor answered, we need research! The IETF funds small-scale pilot research studies on ET. Researchers use these studies to test their theories and gain enough credible data to be funded by a large-scale research grants elsewhere. If you want answers, support the cause. Support research. Support a less shaky future for your kids. Please donate to research today!
