Short Bio: ASSUR (Asociación de Sueño del Uruguay) is a non profit professional society dedicated to Sleep Medicine. Our members are physicians and other health care professionals working on this field. Our mission is to raise awareness on the importance of sleep and also to promote sleep health for all. We accomplish these goals through the organization of medical seminars and educational posts targeting general public on our social media and webpage.
1. Dr. C. Orellana was featured on an interview on March 16th at Calidad de vida, a talk-show dedicated to health, disease prevention and well-being. Watch the video online.
2. Social media: we advertised World Sleep Day on our web page www.assuruy.org and our social media site.
3. We organized an interactive event at Tres Cruces Shopping Mall where we raised awareness about the importance of WSD and Circadian Rhythms throughout the distribution of informative flyers. Also, the public could voluntarily participate in a short survey regarding their sleeping habits. As a souvenir of the WSD, we handed customized sleeping masks.
