February Meeting Summary

The February meeting was well attended, both in person and on the phone. We had a guest from UIC who is in the planning stages of a "Sleepy People" Conference to be scheduled hopefully in the early part of 2013 in the Chicago-land area. It would be a day-long conference and we were being asked for possible topics for seminars or sessions to be held during the conference.

If you have any suggestions, you can forward them to

There was also a lively debate regarding the benefits of treating narcolepsy with diet vs drugs and whether or not they should or must be mutually exclusive. The end result of the debate was that it is a personal choice that should be respected by all and that we should not be judgmental of those who choose differently than we do.
