My name is Dr. William C. Dement and I'm currently a professor at Stanford University in the medical school. I'm a chief scientific adviser of SleepQuest, which specializes in home monitoring for sleep disorders, particularly the sleep apnea syndromes. I have been honored actually many times. I glanced at my curriculum vitae before I came here and there are frankly too many awards to remember, but the one I'm really quite proud of is a bachelor of science award that I received from Mt. Sinai Medical School, I think in 2006, as the leading expert in sleep. My goal is really that now, I think that we have all of the devices for diagnosis and treatment that are needed. They can be obviously improved, but that part is I think more or less finished. What I really am concerned about is the actual knowledge, the public awareness, particularly about the sleep apnea syndromes because they are potentially fatal. I think that because sleep disorders affect such a large proportion of the population it's really, really important to get into the educational system at every practical level. SleepQuest is leading the way to what I think is the future evolution of sleep medicine, which will be to do these studies in the home, rather than in a laboratory.
