We are a non-government organization that was set up about two decades ago to promote quality sleep in the community and to advocates for issues around sleep health. It sort of grew out of the professional association, with a physician, sleep experts and so forth got together for conferences. And we all decided we needed more community focused. So we set up sleep foundation and we have been very successful since then. I have been with the foundation since the very beginning. I am the sleep psychologist myself and a professor of psychology and for the last year or two, I have been the chair of the foundation.
