Overview
The "Wake Up in College" project is about educating healthcare providers in college campuses on Narcolepsy and to improve public awareness. Students face many challenges in college and often do not practice good sleep hygiene. This informational toolkit will help healthcare providers identify the difference of sleep problems caused by poor sleep hygiene versus those caused by Narcolepsy. People with Narcolepsy are often misdiagnosed and do not find out until years later. With early diagnosis, students may be able to address their symptoms and find ways to cope so that they can complete their academic goals. The project will empower the healthcare providers with the tools to assist their community and it will also encourage students that struggle with Narcolepsy.

Did it!!! If the network can get this funding, it will go a long way to reaching college age kids...a definite time when narcolepsy likes to rear it's ugly head.

Don't forget to vote once a day until the end of March.
