You’re driving down the highway late at night, and you find it harder and harder to keep your eyes open. Do you crank up the stereo, maybe roll down the window?

If you’ve ever found yourself in this situation, you’re not alone. The best answer is to avoid driving drowsy, and Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health - Crawfordsville and The Paper of Montgomery County have ways to help make that option a reality.

Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health - Crawfordsville and The Paper of Montgomery County will offer a free community education program on sleep issues and the importance of getting enough sleep Thursday.

"Awareness of Driving Drowsy and Other Sleep Issues" will be held at 11:30 a.m. May 7 at Bonzel Hall, located inside the main entrance to Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health - Crawfordsville. Lunch will be provided.

 “You’re going to have to follow these healthy sleep habits,” MaryAnn Oppy, manager of Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health - Crawfordsville's Sleep Center, said. She plans to go over those habits Thursday, as well as demonstrate some equipment used at the center.

Oppy, who has been in the sleep field for 11 years, has studied the effects of driving drowsy. “It was just an eye opener on comparing it to alcohol consumption,” she said.
