I'd particularly like to thank the BC Balance and Dizziness Disorders Society for supporting our research and providing these research grants. This research would likely not have been done without that funding. ~ Kinesiologist Mark Carpenter, PhD
Starting in 2012, the BC Balance and Dizziness Disorders Society (BADD) awarded a total of $10,000 per year to two recipients. The purpose of the 2012 to 2014 awards was to provide seed funding for innovative research in British Columbia aimed at improving the diagnosis, treatment and/or quality of life of individuals with vestibular disorders. Read about past awards.
In 2016, our award program evolved to focus on funding healthcare professionals in the early stages of their careers to further their education and improve their ability to diagnose, treat and improve the quality of life for people with vestibular disorders. BADD may continue to fund such endeavours up to a total of $10,000 per year.
No awards will be offered for 2017. No decision has been made for 2018 and beyond.
You can help us restart our awards program by donating to BADD or leaving BADD a legacy in your will. How to donate.
