Healthy Sleep Project Launches ‘Awake at the Wheel’ Campaign

Posted by admin on Oct 24, 2014 1:00:00 AM

This week the National Healthy Sleep Awareness Project launched the &lsquo;Awake at the Wheel' public education campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of drowsy driving in order to reduce avoidable motor vehicle accidents and save lives. Drowsy driving prevention is a pillar of the Healthy Sleep Project, which is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and led by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) in collaboration with other partners such as the American Association of Sleep Technologists (AAST).

Earlier this week the project partners endorsed the AASM's new Drowsy Driving Health Advisory, which urges every driver to take responsibility for staying &lsquo;Awake at the Wheel' and encourages transportation companies to promote driver safety through drowsy driving prevention.
