“Innovations in Narcolepsy Awareness”

This Saturday, September 15, Project Sleep* hosts “Innovations in Narcolepsy Awareness,” a unique FREE one-day meeting and interactive workshop focused on narcolepsy. The goal of the event is to empower advocates and advance novel approaches to educating the public about narcolepsy.

When: Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m
Where: The NonProfit Center, 89 South Street, Boston, MA (downtown, one block from South Station)
Cost: FREE; lunch will be provided, but space is limited, so RSVP is required

Led by Nick Dawson, attendees of this special one-time event will have the unique opportunity to share experience to explore way to break down stereotypes about the sleep disorder. Narcolepsy is a chronic neurological disorder affecting 1 in 2,000 people. It is often misunderstood and underdiagnosed.

Featured speakers include narcolepsy awareness maven (and patient) Julie Flygare and designer Michelle Zagardo.

All are welcome and a wide range of perspectives is encouraged to enrich the discussion. This includes people living with health conditions, loved ones, friends, clinicians, researchers, drug developers, and educators.
