Today (September 22nd) is the second annual World Narcolepsy Day. This day is dedicated to raising awareness of narcolepsy on a global scale. Established by 24 patient advocacy organisations across 6 continents in 2019, World Narcolepsy Day unites the international narcolepsy community to inspire action, increase public knowledge, and elevate the voices of the 3 million people living with narcolepsy worldwide.
With World Narcolepsy Day just around the corner, why not take the time this weekend to have a look at some of the narcolepsy infographics we have available. They are all free to share around on social media, which is a great way to help spread awareness!
We are very sorry to confirm that due to the ongoing pandemic situation and the need to protect the health and safety of the public, Narcolepsy UK are unable to host a conference this year. The annual conference has been a feature of Narcolepsy UK activity for decades and we did not take this decision lightly. We are aware that the annual conference is a great source of support to many people, and something that many look forward to. We hope to be able to welcome you all again next year.
We are attending our first World Sleep event and have sent Matt to showcase your #NUKCharter (Narcolepsy UK have a booth in the main exhibition hall 23rd-25th September) and take part in an official event on Sunday, September 22nd, to mark the inaugural #WorldNarcolepsyDay to which he has dedicated a huge amount of personal effort in helping to make happen along with Julie Flygare of Project Sleep and other participating groups from around the world.
