Doctors recommend seven to nine hours or sleep per night, however millions of adults and children suffer from sleep disorders that prohibit them from reaching the recommended amount. Sleep disorders may be seen either as a cause or consequence of other medical conditions. Join us for a full day of education at the 3rd Annual Sleep Symposium as we discuss topics relating to pediatric and elderly sleep disorders, mental health, and heart health and how they intersect with sleep. This course is designed to provide in-depth overview of sleep physiology, major sleep disorders, and relationship of sleep to other disorders. Attendees will also get the facts on melatonin as well as various sleep supplements and their impact on sleep health.
