About Our Program

CDC scientists studying sleep and sleep disorders are in CDC’s Division of Population Health, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.

CDC and its partners work to raise awareness of the impact of sleep health on the public’s health and safety. CDC’s scientists assess the prevalence of sleep insufficiency and sleep disorders in the US population, and conduct applied public health research to assess the relationships between insufficient sleep and chronic disease, behavioral outcomes, and social determinants of health.
