Balance Awareness Week

September 19–25, 2021 marks Balance Awareness Week, an observance designated by the Vestibular Disorders Association (VeDA). Audiologists play a key role in helping to diagnose and manage vestibular and balance disorders in both adults and children; so we use this time to increase awareness about vestibular disorders and offer support to patients on their journey back to balance.

To get involved, help increase awareness by sharing social media graphics and useful infographics, courtesy of the Academy and VeDA. For more information, you can review news article summaries and our Ask the Expert series.
