I just read your article on the flu situation and just wanted to comment on your grammar in the last sentence. It should read “have you ever *gone* to work…” And, yes, my kids do call me the Grammar Nazi. ;-)

Hi Joy,

I would love to talk to you about a new FDA-approved, in-home sleep diagnostic test. It makes it much easier to diagnose sleep apnea – which means it can be treated. First, it people don’t have to go to sleep centers. They can stay in their own beds in their own homes. Second, the out of pocket cost is roughly $40, rather than $700.

There are doctors and patients in Atlanta right now using it – I would be happy to introduce you to them. Please feel free to contact me directly.

Cheers,
Cass
