Sleep Medicine Part 1

Part 1 of the sleep medicine series focusing on the American Sleep Medicine “Make Time 2 Sleep” Video Contest

A few months back, I participated in the 2018 American Sleep Medicine Foundation “Make Time 2 Sleep” Video Contest. The experience, researching common reasons why teenagers do not get enough sleep and devising solutions to the issue, was amazing as I learned more and more about the importance of adequate sleep. This post features my submission for the contest, talking broadly on the subject, and is the first part of a two-part series on sleep medicine.
