Abstract : Since the last report, we have successfully achieved all goals initially set in our statement of work and task timeline for the first 36 months of the award. Recruitment has been delayed and accrued at a slower pace than initially anticipated for clinician-initiated referrals. However, we have rapidly changed our recruitment strategy and continue to seek opportunities to collaborate effective with our colleagues at the VAPHS to facilitate and enhance recruitment of military veterans with sleep disturbances to our research program. This award has also significantly contributed to other reportable outcomes including several scientific, peer-review presentations and symposia, and provided preliminary data for a new successful application for federal funding by the PI.
