Short Bio: I’m a scientific consultant and co-founder of a science curator company, Immerscience. I have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience along with postdoctoral fellowships. I have expertise in psychoneuroendocrinology, mental health, aging and sleep research as well as knowledge transfer. Immerscience is actively collaborating on sleep advocacy with the Canadian Sleep Society (CSS) and Canadian Sleep and Circadian Network (CSCN).
Activity: CSS, CSCN and Immerscience have collaborated to produce and release bilingual material for the public on sleep and aging: “What normal sleep changes can be expected as you age?”. These advocacy texts are available in English and French. The material will be promoted via our websites, social media, newsletters and various media coverage around the WSD and after. Printed copies will also be distributed to sleep research centers and clinics.
