Lunch and Learn: Taking Sleep to Heart

Jason Carter, chair of the Department of Kinesiology and Integrative Physiology, will present a lunch and learn titled “Taking Sleep to Heart” on Tuesday, Feb. 11, from 12 to 1 p.m., in Admin 404.

Sleep is the third pillar of health. Some studies indicate 70 percent of adolescents are sleep deprived. Other studies draw connections to asthma, diabetes, and increasing chances for strokes and heart attacks. It is also known that alcohol use negatively impacts sleep apnea.

This session will focus on the health risks associated with poor sleep habits and what types of behavioral interventions we can do to combat its negative effects.

Bring your lunch; beverages and dessert will be provided.
