In March of 2019, Rising Voices of Narcolepsy speaker Lizzy Terry delivered three separate presentations. She told her story to:
- medical students at Indiana University School of Medicine,
- nursing students at Indiana University- Purdue University Indianapolis, and
- the Indiana Narcolepsy Support Group during their Suddenly Sleepy Saturday event!
Elizabeth Terry is a lifelong ‘Hoosier’ and Indiana University graduate who never outgrew the horse crazy phase. Diagnosed with narcolepsy while in college three years ago, she recently completed Project Sleep’s Rising Voices of Narcolepsy program. By sharing her story, she continues to build awareness for this misunderstood neurological condition and encourages others to do the same.
