Wide Awake Groups meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 5:00pm in the Sleep Disorders Institute's conference room at our facility (423 West 55th Street, 4th Floor).
Groups are open to people with sleep disorders who wish to benefit from discussion with a group leader and peers in a supportive environment. Group discussions focus on a wide variety of topics, ranging from lifestyle matters that impact sleep, to ways to optimize medical care, to nasal CPAP machine maintenance.
There are more than 4,000 clinicians in the United States who are Board Certified in Sleep Medicine.
