Good Night, traveling to NYC

Traveled to New York City over the weekend to be in the audience for the taping of an upcoming PBS special on sleep.

Hosting the broadcast is Dr. Michael Breus, author of Good Night.

My interest in particpating was two-fold: I wanted the opportunity to meet with Michael. I suspected he knew about the ASAA, but wanted to let him know that I was interested in the work he is doing and wanted to find ways where we could work together.

The second was I was interested in learning about producing a PBS special. I haven't spent time in a television studio and this was a chance to see how all that works.

I am pleased to say that it was a sucess on both counts. I had a great conversation with Michael and I am confident we can find ways to help each other while raising awareness about sleep apnea. I also met the executive producer of the program and talked about doing more on sleep.

All in all, it was a productive trip... stay tuned to see what happens.
