The National Sleep Foundation has been the leading expert voice in the world of sleep science and health for nearly thirty years. Since 1996, SleepFoundation.org has served as the public face of the nonprofit, a platform for its acclaimed Sleep in America poll, as well as the sleep education and advocacy programs that remain the cornerstone of the Foundation’s work.

National Sleep Foundation and Tuck Media Partnership

As of December 2019, the National Sleep Foundation transferred SleepFoundation.org to Tuck Media. The new SleepFoundation.org will feature a fresh medical board, expanded sleep science and data content, consumer reports, and intensive product reviews. The site will continue to publish the NSF’s latest research.

  

“We see the opportunity to partner with Tuck Media as a win/win for both parties. Tuck’s digital publishing competencies complement the NSF’s content skills and together provide the formula to propel the site to an entirely different level to serve more people for years to come.” – David Cloud, CEO, the National Sleep Foundation.

  

The team at Tuck Media is honored to acquire and grow SleepFoundation.org and further expand the reach of the site. We’ve been involved in digital publishing since 2001, with a focus on health and wellness since 2015. We know this relationship will allow us to further the mission of advocating for sleep health and wellness and improve upon the breadth and quality of the content along the way. We hope you’ll join us!

Bill had been an entrepreneur for nearly 15 years before he decided his current lifestyle wasn’t healthy, and a change was needed. Taking a step back, he began to understand the extreme importance of sleep as part of one’s health regimen. In 2015, Bill dove head first into learning all he could in regards to sleep, and saw the potential to not only live more healthfully, but a true business growth area as individuals continue to invest in their personal health and wellness. From designing and constructing mattresses for sale online, to becoming a Certified Sleep Science Coach, and even reviewing thousands of sleep products, he now understands the needs of the consumer from both sides. Bill graduated from Xavier University where he captained the baseball team, and now lives in Cincinnati with his wife and two sons.
