A.W.A.K.E. (Alert, Well, And Keeping Energetic) is an educational group for people with sleep apnea as well as their families. The purpose of the A.W.A.K.E. group is to use education to increase awareness about sleep apnea, treatment options and sleep-related health concerns. The A.W.A.K.E. group also encourages members to ask questions, share experiences and learn from each other. The group is open to the public and provided free of charge.
A.W.A.K.E. is a network of hundreds of mutual-help educational groups throughout the United States for people affected by sleep apnea. The network is an integral part of the American Sleep Apnea Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about sleep apnea and to serving people with this common disorder.
