BALANCE AWARENESS WEEK
September 17–23, 2006
VEDA is a great organization. In the past I have sent my local newspaper information about Balance Awareness Week, but apparently nobody but us was aware .
This was LAST week...how come none of us knew I wonder???
I generally post about this every year and take a press release to the local rags, but they never post it and I never have had a response in the past from forum members, so I just decided to forget about it for this year.
The have this every year and every year they issue a press release that we can take to our paper if we want.
It is a shame that more of us are not able to bring this to the attention of our own local media. One year I printed enough to paper cars in the mall and drop off at local pharmacies and the Dr.s office. I wonder if they got the message that year.
The year I papered the mall, I was told that what I was doing was illegal, so I left. I know I spen about $50.00 just for this information in printing fees and another on vestibular disorders.
VEDA had a great newsletter that comes out quarterly. http://www.vestibular.org/
They also have excellent reading material and a great handbook for someone with Meniere's Disease. Check out this site, if you haven't already.
we have no problem with balance awareness, just balance itself
