Speaking at the Hypersomnia Conference 2015

hypersomniaconference_finallogo2-01I’m thrilled to be a featured speaker at the Hypersomnia Foundation’s Annual Conference on Fri. July 17 – Sat. July 18, 2015 at Emory Conference Center Hotel in Atlanta, GA. Join us: http://bit.ly/2015HSFConference. I will present two sessions, one sharing my inspiring journey from hiding my narcolepsy to becoming a vocal advocate and a second session on communicating about sleepiness. The speaker line-up is awesome (see confirmed presenters here).

Thypersomniafoundation_logofinal-01he Hypersomnia Conference 2015 will feature Keynotes, Round Tables, and Breakout Sessions on topics that are consistent with Hypersomnia Foundation mission values – education, advocacy, resources, and support. Join us to learn the latest on research, treatments, challenges, and issues facing people with Hypersomnia today.  This conference is open to:

  • People with Idiopathic Hypersomnia/Major Somnolence Disorder
  • People with Narcolepsy (with and without cataplexy)
  • People with Kleine-Levin Syndrome
  • Supporters of people with Hypersomnia/Narcolepsy/KLS
  • Medical Professionals
  • Scientists
  • Educators
  • Advocates

I personally believe that hypersomnia research is one of the vital keys to unlocking the mysteries of sleep and sleepiness. My friends with idiopathic hypersomnia have touched my heart and inspired me in founding Project Sleep to change perceptions of sleep and sleepiness in America.

I can’t wait for the conference to learn more, meet new friends and celebrate this fierce community’s ground-breaking achievements toward building a brighter future for those living with hypersomnia.

    l just came across this website. I have a dx of idiopathic hypersomnia. I have spent most of my life in exhaustion. Was dx about 7 yrs ago. l am looking forward to finding more info. With treatment/medication, l am better, but there is still room for improvement, be it with energy or with coping. Thank you.
