62nd HALLPIKE SYMPOSIUM
Date: 16th October 2020
Webinar on www.shiksak.live
The annual Hallpike Symposium is held under the aegis of the British Association of Audiovestibular Physicians and is in honour of Charles Skinner Hallpike whose extensive experimental work in the 19th and 20th centuries helped establish methods and investigations into conditions of the inner ear affecting hearing and balance.
Now in its 62nd iteration, the Hallpike Symposium for the first time will be held as a ‘webinar’ due to the current global pandemic.
