Saturday’s social gatherings kicked off with the Old Town Trolley Ride and ended the day with a casual Meet and Greet. “This is the first time in my life I have ever met anyone else with hypersomnia let alone be able to sit and talk to them and share stories. This has truly been life changing for me,” said one attendee.
Sunday’s HF Conference (#HFconf) welcomed all attendees and livestream viewers, both national and international. The “Advocacy and Empowerment” theme presented through each speaker, addressed the various challenges for people with hypersomnia. One post-conference comment: “Thank you for your hard work. I spent (many years) hiding my condition from the world and friends. It was so difficult pretending. Now I don’t have to.”
