During medical training, I worked nights for extra money as a physician in the correctional system. Because I was working a normal job during the day, I needed something to get me to sleep in between calls, and fast.
The environment didn't help either. The call room was filthy, and I slept on a wafer-thin mattress with sheets all sorts of colors.
After practicing certain habits and techniques, I was able to work the next day. One major component was how I took sleep aids. Using what I originally took as inspiration, I decided to make POP sleep, an even better product to share with the world.
Even more than sharing a sleep aid, I want to share my mission to improve the lives of those incarcerated and rehabilitate people affected by the prison industrial complex.
