There is a great deal of online information about balance and dizziness that is helpful, but also a lot of misunderstanding and misinformation. Dizziness is actually a complex set of symptoms that is often difficult for patients as well as doctors to understand.

This talk is aimed at increasing understanding of how the balance system of the inner ear works and how to describe your symptoms so that your doctor will be able to make a proper diagnosis.

Our speaker will be Clinical Neurophysiologist, Art Mallinson. Dr. Mallinson is section head of the Neuro-Otology Unit at Vancouver General Hospital. He is also a clinical assistant professor in the Division of Otolaryngology of the Faculty of Medicine at UBC and president of the BC Balance and Dizziness Disorders Society.

Free, but seating is limited. Please register by phone at: 604-522-3971, or online.

If you cannot attend the program, please contact the Library so someone else can have your spot. Thank you.
