Student creates app for vets to prevent PTSD night terrors

An October 15, 2015 USA Today article discusses the app invented by Macalester College senior  Tyler Skluzacek to help prevent his combat veteran dad’s night terrors.

Skluzacek is working with the Department of Veterans Affairs and sleep experts to improve the app.
