Sleep In Retirement Study

Carnegie Mellon University doctors Louis-Philippe Morency and Tadas Baltrusaitis are examining the effects of night shift work exposure on health, sleep and emotional expression, in conjunction with sleep researchers at the University of Pittsburgh.

Participation includes completing questionnaires, interviews, and measures of cardiovascular health.  Some participants will be asked to complete a laboratory sleep study.  Participants will be compensated up to $450 for their time and effort, and will also receive a sleep and heart health “report card.”

If you are at least 60 years of age, have been retired for a year or more, and have a history of night shift work, you may be eligible.  For more information call the Sleep In Retirement Study at 412-246-5015 or email
