Upcoming Support Group Meetings

Having the support of other people with narcolepsy is an important part of living well with narcolepsy. One of the best ways to get this support is through a support group, where People With Narcolepsy (PWNs) can come together to talk about their experiences, learn more about narcolepsy and just enjoy being around others who truly understand what it’s like to live with narcolepsy.

Boston Children’s Hospital Center for Pediatric Sleep Medicine Patient Education and Support Meeting
Saturday, August 19
10:00 am-noon
This forum is also a good way for children and young adults with narcolepsy to meet others going through similar challenges in a supported environment. In this session, we will focus on helping patients with narcolepsy learn how to cope with the diagnosis and lifelong behavioral skills for managing symptoms. This meeting is aimed at patients aged 6-25 years.
