North Kingstown, RI (PRWEB) August 08, 2014

Every year in October, Narcolepsy Network holds a conference for people with narcolepsy (PWNs) and their supporters and treating professionals. The conference brings PWNs together to hear from some of the world's leading narcolepsy researchers and doctors and to share experiences with one another. The 2014 conference will be October 17-19 in Denver. The Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center will host this year's conference.

The conference features workshops and presentations on a range of subjects including living with narcolepsy, treatment, research updates, and specialized presentations for children and young adults with narcolepsy. Among the scheduled speakers are:

  •     Dr. Todd J. Swick, medical director of Houston Sleep & Neurology

For those who attend, one of the most anticipated parts of the weekend is the fellowship with other people with narcolepsy.

Narcolepsy is a medical disorder that impacts one in approximately 2,000 people in the United States. Many people are unaware of the condition and go undiagnosed. The disease is a sleep disorder, involving irregular patterns in Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep and significant disruptions of the normal sleep/wake cycle. While the cause of narcolepsy is not completely understood, current research points to a combination of genetic and environmental factors that influence the immune system.

Narcolepsy Network® is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing early diagnosis of narcolepsy, advocating for and supporting persons with narcolepsy and their families, and promoting critical research for treatment and a cure.
