Balance Awareness Week
My Story
Balance Awareness Week is one of VEDA's most important sources of funds to carry on the work of educating and supporting those individuals with dizziness and balance disorders. VEDA is the premier national source of information, education and resources for medical professionals and the 64 million Americans affected by inner ear balance disorders, vertigo and other vestibular issues. Contact VEDA at:800.837.8428 or

Next week, Sept.12, starts Balance Awareness Week and I thought I would send a reminder to check in, download your own Flat Pink Flamingo for your door, refrigerator, or note board. As many of you know, I have moved to Philadelphia to continue my care of individuals with dizziness and balance disorders at Jefferson Hospital. I spent the last 3 decades committed to helping patients with balance disorders and vertigo in the Washington, DC Metro area. Eighteen months ago I joined the Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) Board of Directors. VEDA is the only international nonprofit that provides support for those individuals dealing with balance disorders and vertigo. VEDA had been instrumental in guiding many patients to see me for these disorders over the last 25 years. As a board member I have been more involved in helping take the organization to the next level. I have added my medical experience to this group of volunteers which consists of audiologists, physical therapist, other medical professionals, as well as patients. VEDA is a non-profit organization who depends solely on donations and membership dues in order to continue their mission of informing, educating and advocating on behalf of the vestibular community. Balance Awareness Week occurs this September and is the main campaign of the year to seek donations. I am asking you to contribute to VEDA and help those 69 million individuals who will suffer from some sort of balance disorder or vertigo in their lifetime. Thank you for your help, Dr. Fitz, “The Dizzy Doc”
