Do you have consistently have trouble sleeping at night or maintaining wakefulness during the day? An estimated 50 to 70 million Americans chronically suffer from sleep (circadian-related) disorders.
Idiopathic Hypersomnia (IH): Chronically craving sleep during the day, even after sleeping all night
Shift Work Disorder: Disruption of the sleep-wake cycle by jobs outside of normal working hours
Non-24-Hour Sleep Wake Disorder: when the sleep-wake cycle is out of synch with the day-night cycle
Restless Leg/Willis-Ekbom Syndrome (RLS/WES): disagreeable leg sensations that worsen when trying to sleep
Sleep disorders are serious health concerns that cannot always be mitigated by healthy sleep habits. They should be addressed by a sleep specialist, preferably board certified by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
In 2020, Project Sleep plans to award scholarships of $1000 each to 10 students with narcolepsy and five students with idiopathic hypersomnia (thanks to a partnership with the Hypersomnia Foundation).
