This is great.... I think that one of the least understood areas for audiologists
is the vestibular system.  I know that we receive training in performing ENG's and
other vestibular tests. but I think there is a whole slew of vestibular disorders
that we as audiologists, must keep up on, instead of shugging our shoulders whenever
a patient complains of some balance problem.  I see that AAA is holding quite a few
session on vestibular disorders, and that is great.  Thanks Tom...
