About the project owners:
My name is Tania and I am a Belgian ex-patient enjoying a second life without vertigo.
For 15 years I was misdiagnosed and mistreated so I am highly motivated to do everything I can to ensure this doesn’t happen to anyone else.
As a change-maker in medicine I am a VEDA Ambassador and work with doctors and patients to raise awareness about all vestibular conditions.
Professor Floris Wuyts (the man who cured me) is a vestibular expert based in Antwerp where he treats patients and conducts research.
Our co-authorship of ‘Dizzy Me’ involved an innovative partnership between doctors and patients and we are very grateful to everyone who has participated in this project by sharing their expertise.
We are now working hard to spread the valuable knowledge collected in this book.
