Rising Voices of Narcolepsy: Meet Emma, Sleep Apnea Myth Buster!

I’d never heard of anyone like me who had sleep apnea. I started a podcast to challenge stereotypes and raise awareness so fewer people go undiagnosed.

— Emma Cooksey, RVN Advocate

Our Rising Voices of Narcolepsy Story Sharing live broadcast series continued on October 10, 2021 with new storyteller Emma Cooksey! Emma is the first ever Rising Voices of Narcolepsy speaker with sleep apnea and the host of the Sleep Apnea Stories podcast.
