Web Sites Raise Public Awareness

APRIL 01, 2005

Sleep associations are educating the public with revamped and new Web sites. The National Sleep Foundation has redesigned its Web site (www.sleepfoundation.org). The site offers state-of-the-art tools and quizzes, interactive tools, and the new Sleeptionary. The Sleeptionary serves as a guide to understanding sleep issues and disorders.

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has launched a new public education Web site (www.sleepeducation.com). The site offers descriptions of sleep disorders and treatments. In addition, visitors can find current news and helpful hints about sleep disorders. The on-line public message board provides individuals with an immediate forum to discuss related issues and problems. The launch of a children's section will give kids educational information and facts, as well as interactive games and activities about sleep.
