Project Sleep is proud to announce that we are now accepting applications for our third series of Rising Voices of Narcolepsy trainings, to take place online this summer of 2019. This leadership training program helps people with narcolepsy effectively share their stories through public speaking or writing with local communities, healthcare providers, news outlets, blogs, and beyond. Through the Rising Voices of Narcolepsy, we combine the power of authentic real-life stories with expert communication strategies to raise awareness and reduce stigmas for all those facing narcolepsy.
