Speaker: Julieann WallaceWriter, educator, artist and advocate for Meniere’s Disease
Julieann has had Meniere’s for 25 years and throughout her journey she has maintained a positive approach. In 2004 she had a gentamicin injection destroyed her balance cells in her MD ear and through vestibular physiotherapy she relearnt her new normal. She was recently fitted with a cochlear implant.
She is an advocate for Meniere’s Disease. 100% of book profits “The Colour of Broken” are donated to research to finding a cure for Meniere's disease. Also, the proceeds from her journals go to Meniere's Research. She has created a series of artworks “Captive” representing the turbulent journey of diagnosis of any incurable disease, in her case, Meniere’s disease. Her sequel to “The Colour of Broken” will be released in 2021
(FYI the screen froze in some parts (this is common problem with webinars) and there was minor technical problem before the second power point presentation. This does not take anything away from Julieann’s presentation.)
