The goal of Balance Awareness Week is to help people recognize the symptoms of a vestibular disorder. Through increased awareness among patients and professionals we can better advocate for improved training and diagnostic protocols, and increased coverage of vestibular disorders by insurance companies. Together we can make a difference!

Thanks for all you do to improve the quality of life for patients suffering from inner ear balance problems!
