1. The title of the study I used is OTC Sleep Aids. It was published in February 2015

The report brought up three major issues our group must address. One of these is how to get more consumers to use sleep aids while decreasing health concerns. Additionally, it provided insight on our target market of college students (the study focuses on the age group of 18 to 34-year-olds).
