Dr Neale Lange trained as a medical doctor at Wits, completed service obligations and specialized further in Internal Medicine at St Mary’s Health Center in St Louis filling the post of Chief Resident. He obtained further specialization in Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine at Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis, where he remained for 2 years as Assistant Professor of Medicine and Neurology until 2001 when I moved to Denver Colorado.
After successfully practicing all his specialties for years and experiencing severe sleep deprivation, he has spent the last decade focusing on Sleep Medicine and is actively affiliated with the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the College of Chest Physicians.
With this as a basis Neale embarked upon a broader career of international consulting and entrepreneurship around sleep, health and wellness and lately the measurement of sleep quality in the home, applying this to fatigue in the workplace and pursuit of marginal gains. Since we all sleep, democratization of sleep measurement is a major forward step to unlocking the Health and Wellness effects of sleep. We sleep, so as to be awake and function optimally. His message is to revalue sleep individually and within corporations to maximize employee function as well as group productivity and performance. Local South African clients include mining, aviation and professional sports teams.
Neale is passionate about sleep and coaching people in this regard. Viva 7 hours of quality sleep per night!
"King David taught me about reaching individual potential, the value of community, religion and discipline on the need to excel in a highly competitive environment. It was indeed a huge privilege to attend an impressive school system built over decades, nurtured by many thereby positively changing the world. I thank Mr Nick Taylor, Mevrou Roussow and Ms Dunn as individual teachers who stand out to this day. I especially thank my co-learners, many of whom remain friends today."
