About Dr Harrington:  
Dr Carmel Harrington has been working in the world of sleep for nearly 20 years. A former lawyer and educator, she has a PhD in Sleep Medicine from Sydney University and consults with companies and educational institutions both here and overseas on sleep health. 

An internationally recognised sleep expert, Dr Harrington is amazed at the seemingly little importance given to sleep. Research shows that sleep is critical to our physical and mental health and is fundamental to our ability to think and learn. Emerging research clearly shows that sleeping well is a key component to optimal performance and health and if we want to be at the top of our game we need to ensure we get the best sleep possible. 

Dr Harrington is the Managing Director of Sleep for Health and an Honorary Research Fellow at the Children's Hospital Westmead. She is a founding member of the Sleep Health Foundation and a member of the Australasian Sleep Association.
