Chattanooga Sleep Specialist To Speak At Sleep Conference In India

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

Dr. Anuj Chandra, a Chattanooga sleep specialist who has been a leader in bringing cutting edge sleep medicine to India, will again serve as faculty this year at the seventh annual National Sleep Medicine Course (NSMC), which is to be held Dec. 14-15 in Chennai, India. This year is the sixth year that Dr. Chandra has spoken at the conference.

“It’s amazing to see that the importance of sleep testing is growing drastically. I’m so excited to teach young doctors about the new devices that are being developed in the sleep testing arena” said Dr. Chandra. “I can’t wait to see where this goes next.”

The National Sleep Medicine Course has grown immensely in the seven years since its first meeting. It is an effort between American, Indian and Japanese sleep specialists where information about sleep medicine is offered for a select group of Indian physicians. The conference includes student attendance as well as international experts, corporations, and other business entities from the field. The NSMC presents original research carried out in India which will then be introduced to the world.

The two day course is designed to cover major topics in sleep medicine over several sessions and workshops. "This conference is continuing to significantly improve the awareness and bring the latest knowledge of treatment methods from the U.S. to India," said Dr. Chandra. 

Dr. Chandra was a founding member and has volunteered his time as an instructor since the annual National Sleep Medicine Course was created in 2006 under the direction of Dr. Deepak Shrivastava, professor of medicine at the University of California and Dr. H.N. Mallick, professor of physiology of All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

Police Need To Stop The Road Cowboys - And Response (2)

Where is our highway patrol?  If they were known to regularly patrol our interstate highways through our city I don't think it would take long before the "truckers" were aware of it.  There are places in our country where this is the case.   When I have traveled Interstates 24 and 75 I may see the occasional car pulled over but rarely if ever is it an 18-wheeler. ...

I have the same view of these paranormal societies where otherwise sane people go around looking ... (click for more)
