Other confirmed speakers include: narcolepsy specialists Drs. Lois Krahn, Chad Ruoff, and Todd Swick, researchers Dr. Florian Merkle and Mali Einen, and sleep and dreaming expert Dr. Rubin Naiman. Many more speakers will be added, so there will be something for everyone.
We will also be continuing with our popular sessions for kids and young adults with narcolepsy. Youth-only sessions will be geared to several age ranges and will offer plenty of time to have fun with other youth with narcolepsy.
