Congress on Sleep, Health, and Aging
This meeting was cosponsored by the National Sleep Foundation and NIA. There is an extensive gap between the science of what is known about sleep in the elderly and the application of this knowledge in clinical practice. Speakers and attendees reviewed the knowledge base about sleep, its disorders, and impact on health in the elderly. The group also developed strategies to help close the gap between science and the bedside.
