At the SLEEP 2012 Plenary Session, Mark Rosekind, PhD, an SRS member and National Transportation Safety Board Member, delivered a memorable keynote speech on the dangers of fatigue across all modes of transportation. Materials from Dr. Rosekind's speech are now available through the NTSB. This includes a full PowerPoint presentation and a call to action on the NTSB Director's blog. "This nation needs much more from the world of sleep science," wrote Rosekind. "We need more operationally relevant research that provides the scientific basis to change further the laws, policies, and practices affecting transportation safety."
