Federal Funding for CDC Sleep and Sleep Disorders Activities

We can all make a difference. The National Sleep Foundation (NSF) needs help from sleep professionals. The NSF and member organizations of the National Sleep Awareness Roundtable (NSART) are seeking funding for sleep activities at the CDC this year. This money will allow the CDC to start data collection and surveillance activities, create education and awareness materials for the public and health care professionals, and establish fellowship opportunities for promising researchers at universities and colleges. Please help by contacting Congress today!

For more information, please visit,

You can help secure funding for sleep-related programs at the CDC by e-mailing, calling, or faxing a letter to your Representative and Senators today. A sample letter is provided for you to personalize as much as possible (click here).

I encourage you to support the sleep field by contacting your legislators today.

Be well, Sleep well,
