The first-ever national conference on teen sleep and later school start times will be held April 27-28, 2017, in Washington, DC. More than 20 internationally-recognized sleep researchers and school district leaders from around the U.S. will share their knowledge and first-hand experiences related to implementing healthy school start times during this interactive conference. Insufficient sleep is a public health epidemic among American teens, and is known to increase risk for motor vehicle crashes, as well as mental health and substance use problems. Find out why early school start times directly contribute to the epidemic of teen sleep loss and how school districts have successfully navigated this change in their communities.
