Too many of us get too little sleep — and that’s a big problem. A higher risk of serious health issues like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease might be the result. Unfortunately, many aspects of sleep are still poorly understood by doctors and scientists. That’s because, until recently, studying sleep required expensive laboratories and cumbersome equipment. But popular personal digital devices like smartwatches and fitness wearables now make it possible to participate in important sleep research.
Helping Scientists Unravel the Mystery of Sleep Could Help You Sleep Better

REFRESH (REsearch FRamework Exploring Sleep Health) from the Scripps Research Digital Trials Center is now recruiting participants for an innovative new sleep study. It’s a modern effort to learn more about the physical and psychological dimensions of sleep. In the future, this may lead to personalized solutions for better sleep and better health.
