Public Policy & The National Sleep Foundation


sonnomasksApproximately 40 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders and another 20 to 30 million suffer intermittent sleep-related problems.

Evidence tells us that America‚Äôs sleep debt is on the rise. Yet, numerous studies have concluded that the general public, policy makers and primary care physicians lack basic sleep knowledge. More importantly, the vast majority of Americans with sleep disorders remain undiagnosed and untreated and research is severely lacking. As a result, the toll on human health, productivity and safety is enormous. 

Due to these reasons, the National Sleep Foundation is committed to an advocacy program with the Legislative and Executive branches of the federal government. Their mission is to promote public understanding of sleep and sleep disorders and support education, research and advocacy to improve public health and safety. One essential way to achieve this mission is to advocate for federal research and educational initiatives to ensure that all Americans have access to the health care and knowledge they need to lead healthy, productive lives. Within these broad goals, they dedicate themselves to a government advocacy program that addresses the following legislative and regulatory issues.
