- Dr. David Plante of the University of Wisconsin will discuss “Hypersomnolence Disorders and Depression, “ the focus of his recently published study.

- Rebecca King, Hypersomnia Foundation’s new Legislative Advocate and Board member, will share her advocacy efforts in Washington, D.C. and at NIH in Bethesda, where she has worked for increased funding for sleep disorder research.

- Sarah Beazley, Hypersomnia Foundation Board member, former nurse and a patient advocate, will hold an interactive workshop on “Effective Self-Advocacy: Getting Your Best Care” for people with IH and related sleep disorders.

- Amy Desmarais, Hypersomnia Foundation Board member, will share her personal journey: “Living with a Rare Sleep Disorder.”
