Sleep apnea support group

  Need someone to talk to about your CPAP therapy?
  A support group called Tri-County A.W.A.K.E. (Alert, Well And Keeping Energetic) meets quarterly in metro Detroit. The next meeting is 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13 in the Shelby Macomb Medical Mall lower level conference room.
  Family members are welcome. (Now there's a hot pre-Valentine's Day date.) 
  There's a presentation, followed by a Q and A session.
  Dr. Prabhat Sinha, who specializes in sleep medicine, will be the featured speaker. CPAP vendors will display their equipment and answer questions. You can even bring your CPAP or BiPAP for a free pressure and equipment check. Bring the power cord, too.
  To RSVP, visit here or call facilitator Mike Barthel at (586) 445-5995. Check out the group's FAQ.
