Asleep During 'The Week'
We just concluded Sleep Awareness week 2014. I am ashamed to say that I completely forgot about it this year. This year I was too distracted and was not even aware until the last day. But I will make up for it next week by hosting a belated event. After all, it is spreading the word and awareness for sleep apnea that is important -- not a specific date that matters.
Normally I take this time to host an open house in the lab. We have assorted refreshments and invite the hospital staff to drop in throughout the day. It creates awareness of who we are and what we do. It also provides a good opportunity to talk to a variety of folks about sleep apnea.
We give a tour of the lab and have little goodie packets that include sleep quizzes, OSA pamphlets and details for how to make an appointment.
Hopefully I was the only one who suffered amnesia (smile). How did everyone else observe the week?
