Founding Editor Wayne Caswell spends his mornings scouring the mainstream press to read about innovations and trends addressing the rising costs of medical care as our population ages. He then responds with his own unique perspective if appropriate, shares the important articles in social media, and writes our blog. Wayne also serves as a self-proclaimed sleep economist at Intelligent Sleep. There he’s working to expand the concept of Population Sleep Wellness because of the vital role sleep plays in our nation’s health, safety and performance.
