On the road, at work, at school, at home, we, our friends, neighbors, co-workers, loved ones average less than seven hours of sleep each weekday. That's a lot of sleep-deprived Houstonians. And we're not just tired, we're inattentive, less productive, and it's not good for us.

We welcome your questions about sleep and sleep disorders — everything from snoring to sleep apnea to sleepwalking and beyond. Our guests are: Dr. Richard Castriotta, medical director of Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center's Sleep Disorders Center and professor and director of the division of Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine at UT Health Medical School; and Dr. Candice Alfano, Director of Sleep and Anxiety Center for Kids at the University of Houston.
