Initiatives Funded by BC Balance and Dizziness
I'd particularly like to thank 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
In 2018 we donated $2,500 worth of books about balance and dizziness disorders to public libraries throughout British Columbia. One of the primary goals of BC Balance and Dizziness is to increase availability of information to the general public. The books were chosen from a list curated by vestibular health professionals in BC using the following criteria: currency, evidence-based content and relevance to the general public. From the titles purchased, books were divided among large urban library systems and regional library federations to fill perceived gaps and shortfalls in their collections. BC Balance and Dizziness Society bookplates accompanied the donated books.
No initiatives were funded in 2017.
In 2016, we awarded a total of $10,000 to 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.
No initiatives were funded in 2015.
From 2012 to 2014 we awarded a total of $10,000 per year 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.
