Although Delaware has historically avoided direct hits, record-breaking warmth in the Atlantic Ocean and higher surface temperatures are increasing the likelihood of hurricanes or other major storms impacting the state.

ChristianaCare is first in state to offer ultrasound treatment for essential and Parkinson's tremor

ChristianaCare is the first health care provider in Delaware to offer an FDA-approved focused ultrasound treatment for people suffering from essential tremor and Parkinson’s disease.

This week, Delaware Public Media’s Joe Irizarry sat down with Dr. Justin Martello – Director of the Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Programs, and Focused Ultrasound Program at ChristianaCare – to learn more about the ultrasound treatment.
