But a new pilot study examining the sleep habits of women in Appalachia may hold some important answers for drowsy folks everywhere.
Dr.Mairead Moloney is a faculty member in the UK Department of Sociology, who along with other colleagues has been working with women in Appalachia to discover the incidence and the prevalence of insomnia.
