Help Raise Awareness and Show Your Support

Save These Dates to Help Raise Awareness & Show Your Support in September!

September 14-20, 2015 is Balance Awareness Week!

The goal of the Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) for Balance Awareness Week is to “Defeat Dizziness” by reducing the time it takes to diagnose a vestibular disorder. This is a great opportunity to help raise awareness for vestibular and balance disorders and show your support for people living with chronic dizziness and imbalance.

September 28-October 4, 2015 is Invisible Illness Awareness Week!

Nearly 1 in 2 people have a chronic condition in the U.S. and about 96% of those people are suffering silently with an “invisible” illness (that does not have obvious visible signs of illness).  Unfortunately, people living with an “invisible” chronic illness such as a vestibular or balance disorder are often misunderstood and stigmatized by society, including being negatively perceived as not sick, exaggerating, lazy, drunk, unintelligent, etc.  Get involved to help make a difference!
