I am a Clinical Health Psychologist practicing in Washington DC and a behavioral sleep specialist associated with Medstar Georgetown University’s Sleep Disorders Center for over two decades.
As well, in collaboration with an interdisciplinary George Mason University team, we are developing a health communication campaign – ‘Share CBT-I.’ Our aim is to assist healthcare professionals to convey to health consumers ‘what works’ for insomnia and where to find it (e.g., Insomnia Hub, CBT Hub).
Educators, clinicians, researchers, & students join in a Community of Practice to LEAD – to fight the hype and interprofessionally speak up for ‘what’s proven to work’ for Insomnia.
We are an online non profit Community of Practice (oCoP), in the spirit of the Free Open Access Medical (FOAM) education movement.
