Vertigo Day featuring international speakers including Prof Dr Margie Sharpe

If you’re suffering from dizziness or balance disorders, or know somebody who is, I invite you to tune in to a free, online event to learn about the latest research and treatment techniques.

It is the inaugural, global Vertigo Day event, being held on June 30, 2020 (July 1, Adelaide time) and I am honoured to have been selected as one of the international keynote speakers.

This is the world’s first online event for providing the latest treatment resources and testimonials to the dizziness community, and it is aimed at patients rather than specialists and academics. You can register and attend here.

I will be delivering a presentation on Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy, which should coincide with 9.30am, Wednesday, July 1 (Adelaide time).

At this free, international event, you will get to learn:

  • The newest techniques and research from vestibular specialists
  • What you can do to treat your dizziness from home
  • Hopeful stories from Dizzy Patients worldwide
  • And a simple action plan to get your dizziness under control

Why do we need Vertigo Day?

Dizziness is the symptom of many conditions which makes it challenging to find the root cause.

As a result, many dizzy patients go to 5 or 6 doctors before actually getting a proper diagnosis. Along the treatment timeline, it’s easy for dizzy patients to lose hope. I recently wrote about the challenges of diagnosing dizziness and balance disorders, emphasising the importance of extend history taking. You can read it here: Why are you feeling dizzy or out of balance? Let me count the ways.

The agenda for the event is as follows:

  • Session 1: Dizziness 101 – An Introduction to Vestibular Dizziness
  • Session 2: The Varieties of Vestibular Dizziness & How They’re Treated
  • Session 3: Anxiety, Stress, and Dizziness
  • Session 4: When to Start Your Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy
  • Session 5: How We Fix Dizziness
  • Session 6: The Future of Dizziness Treatment

Vertigo Day is here to restore hope to the dizzy patients of the world. We’re a community that is stronger together. And we want to hear from you!
