Sleep Awareness Week is an annual public education and awareness campaign to promote the importance of sleep. The week begins with the announcement of the National Sleep Foundation's Sleep in America poll results and ends with the clock change to Daylight Saving Time, where Americans lose one hour of sleep.
The Foundation's Sleep Care Center members host events in their local communities throughout the week, providing sleep education and screening to the public.
The NSF has investigated many topics over the nearly two decades of its poll's history; the 2014 Sleep in America Poll looked at sleep and the modern family, revealing many interesting data points around how both adults and children react to factors such as technology in the bedroom and how sleep impacts overall growth and development.
