Join Co-Founder Dr. Helena Esmonde PT, DPT, NCS and guests Dr. Miriam Welgampola and Dr. Allison S. Young as they discuss and take live questions about recent research on the topic of Meniere’s Disease.
Dr Miriam Welgampola is an Associate Professor of Neurology at the Central Clinical School, University of Sydney. She is a neuro-otologist and Director of Clinical Research at The Balance Clinic. She has been a consultant neurologist at the Institute of Clinical Neurosciences, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. Miriam’s clinical work focuses on ictal assessment of acute vestibular syndromes presenting to the emergency room, early diagnosis of vestibular disorders by event monitoring and treatment of intractable positional vertigo (BPV). Her translational research focuses on “capturing” acute vertigo in the frontline (emergency department and general practice).
Allison Young is a research Audiologist at The Balance Clinic. Originally from Alberta, Canada, she has completed a diploma in Speech Pathology and received a Masters Degree of Clinical Audiology at Macquarie University. Her previous work experience involved working as a hearing aid practitioner. Her main focus now is comprehensive audio-vestibular testing, using new, non-invasive tests such as Vestibular evoked potentials (VEMPs) and video head impulses (vHIT), as well as established techniques including VNG/VOG, ABR and audiometry. Allison’s doctoral research examines the vestibular-test profiles of common vestibular disorders and vestibular event-monitoring.
