Sleep and circadian rhythms are intimately related to nearly all aspects of mental and physical health, yet are often underrepresented in physician training curriculum. Topics are chosen to represent current key topics in pediatric sleep, circadian rhythms, and health that are relevant to public health and clinical practice. The Providence Sleep Research Interest Group (PSRIG) was formed in 1990 and provides an opportunity for scientists and clinicians to interact on a monthly basis for the scholarly exchange of ideas and information pertaining to the area of sleep and circadian rhythms. We are thrilled to present a diverse lineup of speakers from various institutions both nationally and internationally, and to open this series to a wider audience. We hope to maintain an atmosphere that is informal, intimate, and sleep-sophisticated. Invited speakers represent diverse backgrounds and approaches in their study of sleep and chronobiological issues, and pediatric mental health, including basic and clinical research. This work is supported by the COBRE Center for Sleep and Circadian Rhythms in Child and Adolescent Mental Health funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the NIH under grant number P20GM13974.
