Sleep Apnea Story Sharing: Meet Gary

Our Rising Voices Story Sharing Series continued with sleep apnea advocate Gary Knight! Gary shared his story of living with undiagnosed sleep apnea for 15 years, and how finally being diagnosed and treated helped him change his life and empower others to do the same. Emma Cooksey, creator of the Sleep Apnea Stories podcast and member of Project Sleep’s Expert Advisory Board, hosted this live event.

  • Emma, if there was a way to send a notification to remind me that would be great. It would work out perfectly as I am done seeing patients by 2pm, I could then get on this podcast. Best, Ivan Valcarenghi, DDS, FAGD, D.ABDSM
