Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a common disease that is under-diagnosed
and associated with increased adverse health-outcomes and mortality.
Compared to European-Americans, African Americans have early-onset and
more severe forms of the disease. In addition, their lower SES is
associated with less access to care and the ability to absorb the cost of
care. This research examines how habitual, voluntary sleep restriction
impacts the quality of life for African Americans.
