Activities and Accomplishments

We have hosted a yearly educational conference in the fall since our organization began and added a spring event 4 years ago as well. We currently have an education committee to organize these events and have a newly formed community education committee as we prepare to have a presence at state health care fairs so we can inform the public about the value of sleep and symptoms of sleep disorders. We have been very active in teen sleep advocacy with a committee focused on bringing the research on school start times to education leaders and non-sleep health professionals. We created a Teen Sleep Loss Toolkit which has been used nationally. We also brought about legislation to put a spotlight on this issue of teen sleep deprivation.
