IDIOPATHIC HYPERSOMNIA & NARCOLEPSY
The weekend of 9-10 April 2022 became a hub for sleep medicine and education with the first ever FREE Sleep Health & Wellbeing Expo on Saturday 9th April followed by the Idiopathic Hypersomnia and Narcolepsy Education Day on Sunday 10th April at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Researchers and clinicians in Australia receive very little or no education with regard to narcolepsy and disorders of hypersomnolence. This lack of knowledge and understanding has direct negative health outcomes for sufferers including delayed diagnosis and treatment. Our Education Day was a unique opportunity designed for medical and allied health care professionals, people suffering from disorders of hypersomnolence, and their family and friends to learn more about these disorders from our invited speakers and from each other.
Prof. Ron Grunstein, Michelle Chadwick, Fiona Mobbs,
Dr David Cunnington, Dr Sara Winter, Prof. Yves Dauvilliers joined us live via video
We did not receive funding to help us with this event. We do not receive funding at all (and we do not charge membership). We have been able to make the videos of these presentations (and other presentations) available for free via the generosity of our few loyal supporters. If you can make a donation to help support our efforts which will lead to more video resources and hopefully another education day in a city near you, please do so here, no amount is too small. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.The Trustee for Hypersomnolence Australia is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) from 01 Jul 2013.
