Balance Awareness Week 16-22 Sept 2018

Daily Update

Day-to-day update of Balance Awareness Week 2018 activity...

Balance Disorder Spectrum **Launched this week**

For Balance Awareness Week 2018 we are very excited to announce the launch of the #BalanceDisorderSpectrum – an easy to use, interactive website, bringing the whole range of balance disorders together in one place for the first time. Professor Andrew Hugill (University of Leicester), creator of the Balance Disorder Spectrum and Ménière’s disease sufferer, said: “As someone with a balance disorder I know only too well how confusing it can be when you experience these symptoms. I wish something like this had been around when I was first affected. Although it is no substitute for a diagnosis by a fully qualified medical practitioner it will help to inform people suffering from these conditions so that they better understand their symptoms and can have a more informed conversation with their doctor.” Click here to find out more and access the Balance Disorder Spectrum. #BalanceAwarenessWeek #BAW2018 #Balance #DefeatDizziness #Vestibular #GetInvolved #RaisingAwareness #MenieresSociety #BalanceDisorders

Today as part of #BAW2018 we're celebrating our local groups. These groups are vital in providing face-to-face meetings for like minded people looking for mutual support. Enormous thanks to our volunteers who run the groups, many of whom have a vestibular condition themselves; these groups wouldn't happen without you. Members of the Cambridge group are pictured hosting a #BalanceAwarenessWeek stand at their local hospital.
