Idiopathic Hypersomnia Awareness Week® 2018 Ambassadors



We are pleased to introduce the 2018 Idiopathic Hypersomnia Awareness Week® Ambassadors. We are fortunate to again have representatives from a few different countries. They bring to the role a range of perspectives and experience. Let's meet them!


Susanna Barber Northumberland, UK

Susanna has a love of people and animals. She has spent many years working with horses in roles that include grooming, a jockey, event rider as well as a yard manager. Sadly, due to IH she has had to give this up. Susanna feels that there is a void in the UK for support and knowledge about IH and she would like to work towards changing that. She is very passionate about changing people’s perspective of those who have sleep conditions as it’s often not thought of as a serious problem. Susanna would love to become a point of contact for people in the UK to offer support and help them find the answers they are looking for.
