Sleeptember® is a new year-long, patient-led and patient-supported effort designed to create fun and engaging online and community events in order to raise awareness of the public health impact of sleep loss, connect the dots with other health conditions, and raise funds for medical research and advocacy efforts in order to improve the health of all.
We seek to create a community of members of the public, people with chronic health conditions, non-profit organizations, industry, and federal and state agencies to work together to create a critical mass of attention to how sleep impacts our health, safety, well being, and productivity.
There are lots of easy ways to be part of Sleeptember. Get involved today! Here’s how:
Participate in our online community and through social media to share, learn and help raise awareness of sleep and its connection to health, safety and productivity.
Also, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. We’re grateful for any sharing/retweeting/regramming to help spread the word about the Sleeptember campaign to your friends, family and colleagues.
Become a #GlobalCitizenResearcher! Your sleep data helps drive insights for us and our partners.
Give a donation of money, your time or expertise to help spread the word and help us build the campaign and fund medical research and advocacy combating the major health problems of our day. If you would like to volunteer contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s just that simple and doesn’t cost you a thing. Use the month of Sleeptember to improve your sleep habits as well as those of other family members. Commit to getting an additional 15 minutes a day and add from there. See how you feel and the rest will take care of itself.
