What We Do
Sleep loss hampers our ability to concentrate, reduces motivation and creativity, and increases irritability. Insufficient sleep jeopardizes our personal health, our workplace productivity, and the well-being of our communities.
In the United States, working days lost due to insufficient sleep and sleep disorders account for $411 billion in economic losses and represent 2.28 percent of our country’s GDP annually. The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) has described the rising trend of insufficient sleep as “an unmet public health problem.” Thanks to breakthroughs in the field of sleep research, we are now beginning to understand the fundamental importance of sleep.
Sleep and circadian research matters, and it is vital that we continue to probe and investigate if we are to unlock these mysteries and so many more.
