Congratulations to WUN Co-founder and Board Member, Monica Gow, who is listed as co-author on an article and poster presented at the SLEEP 2017 Conference by Dr. Kiran Maski, MD, Sleep Neurology Clinics, Boston Children’s Hospital titled “Listening to the Patient Voice: Diagnostic Delays, Disease Burden and Treatment Efficacy.”

Recently, Gow was interviewed by Sleep Review Magazine about the narcolepsy journey of her son Thomas and WUN’s role in this research project. In 2013, WUN sponsored a study aimed to provide patient perspectives on narcolepsy symptoms and treatments. Almost 1700 patients and their caregivers participated in the study.
