Deep Brain Stimulation for Essential Tremor and Vocal Tremor

Presented by Stanford Health Library

Essential tremor (ET) of the limbs and voice is one of the most common movement disorders, but many patients do not respond to medication. For those with disabling tremor, even vocal tremor, surgical treatment may be an option. This talk will focus on one type of surgery: deep brain stimulation, what it is, and how it affects essential tremor.

Living it Forward: Gifts and Challenges of Survivorship

Presented by Stanford Cancer Supportive Care Program

Some call us survivors, others consider themselves 'thrivers'. No matter how we name ourselves, the question we each carry is: who are we now? With mounting outside pressure to return to ‘normal', yet irrevocably changed at the core, how do we create a healthy foundation for this new life and live it forward?

Finding Familial High Cholesterol Before You Know You Have It

Presented by Stanford Health Library

FH, or familial hypercholesterolemia, is a genetic predisposition to very high levels of LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) that may first manifest itself as a fatal heart attack at a premature age. There are therapies, statin-based, that reliably improve outcomes for patients with FH. But there is a big problem: 90 out of 100 patients who have FH do not know they have it or perhaps even what it is. Many physicians are equally in the dark about the disease and therefore do not screen patients for it. This talk will discuss the condition, its familial qualities, and new research to help diagnosis it before it does damage.
