Dr. Christopher Winter has practiced sleep medicine and neurology in Charlottesville, Virginia since 2004, and has been involved with sleep medicine and sleep research since 1993. Currently he is the owner of Charlottesville Neurology and Sleep Medicine clinic and CNSM Consulting. He recently stepped down as the Medical Director of the Martha Jefferson Hospital Sleep Medicine Center, a sleep center he established in 2004.

Dr. Winter is an Echols Scholar graduate of the University of Virginia and received his medical degree from Emory University. He completed his neurology residency at the University of Virginia. The recipient of research awards from the Sleep Medicine Society and the Associated Professional Sleep Societies, Dr. Winter has authored numerous scientific papers and abstracts dealing with sleep. He is also board certified in sleep medicine by both the American Board of Sleep Medicine and by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, as well as being board certified in neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.

Winter’s current research focuses on sleep and athletic performance, and has consulted with dozens of professional sports teams from MLB, NBA, WNBA, NFL and NHL.

He is the author of The Rested Child, a fantastic book that I highly recommend, as well as The Sleep Solution.
