Date Occurred:   September 10, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. EDT 

 


WEBINAR OVERVIEW

Quality sleep is a key component of healthful living and lifestyle medicine.  Recent scientific studies are demonstrating that poor sleep is associated with many more adverse effects than fatigue, and include cardiovascular disease, metabolic dysfunction, mood disorders, learning impairment, aberrant DNA repair, and reduced stamina.  In this Lifestyle Medicine webinar Virginia Gurley, MD, MPH and Liana Lianov, MD, MPH will review sleep physiology with a focus on the affects of basic lifestyle factors such as diet, activity, coping and living environment on sleep quality.  This review will serve as the foundation for understanding basic sleep quality assessment, differential diagnosis and lifestyle counseling to enhance sleep quality and health.
