The Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) is the leading international organization that people turn to for help with vestibular (inner ear and brain) disorders. We are an authoritative resource, publishing information that is clear, reliable, and scientifically objective. VEDA supports people with vestibular disorders by connecting them to health care specialists and support networks. VEDA promotes awareness for vestibular disorders through testimony and advocacy.
The VEDA board of directors provides leadership and strategic direction to the organization, helping to identify programs and projects that will further VEDA's mission and improve the quality of life for people with vestibular disorders. Board members are geographically dispersed, but share a passion for advocating for the vestibular disorders community. The board is diverse in terms of personal and professional background, skills and experiences. Many board members suffer from one or more vestibular disorders; others have a loved one who has been diagnosed with a vestibular disorder; some are professionals in the vestibular field. The board meets monthly - once in Portland, Oregon and 11 times via teleconference. Board members utilize their personal connections to expand the reach of VEDA's message, participate in fundraising efforts, and make a financial contribution to the organization.
