Researchers in Danville, Bloomsburg, Lewistown and Wilkes-Barre open enrollment for national clinical trial
Geisinger is conducting the research in conjunction with a cohort of other medical and sleep research facilities including Stanford School of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, St. Luke’s Hospital, MedSleep, and Bogan Sleep Consultants. The study will enroll 30,000 participants in total.
“There is so much about sleep and sleep disorders that we do not fully understand,” said Anne Marie Morse, DO, principal investigator of the study and sleep specialist at Geisinger. “Sleep impacts everything from physical and mental health to a person’s work ability and even the health of their personal relationships. This research will help doctors learn more and find better solutions to treat sleep disorders.”
Participants must be 13 years old or older and be referred to a Geisinger Sleep Clinic. Participation includes completing questionnaires and other research activities. Participants will be seen at sleep clinics in Danville at Geisinger Medical Center, in Bloomsburg at Geisinger Bloomsburg Hospital, in Wilkes-Barre at the Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre Sleep Clinic and in Lewistown at Geisinger Lewistown Hospital. Recruitment may expand to other Geisinger locations.
