Green Valley Lecture Series – 'Sleep to Your Heart's Content'
The University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center will kick off its 32nd annual Green Valley Lecture Series presented by Michael A. Grandner.
About the lecture series: Sleep is an important part of health and poor sleep can increase risk of obesity, heart disease, diabetes and other health problems. Sleep disorders such as insomnia and sleep apnea also can play an important role in heart disease risk. Grandner will talk about some of the ways that healthy sleep can impact heart health, as well as how it impacts daytime functioning. He also will discuss ways to tell if you have a sleep problem, how to fix basic sleep problems and where to go for additional help. Grandner is a member of the UA Sarver Heart Center, director of the Sleep and Health Research Program at the UA, and UA assistant professor of psychiatry, medicine, psychology and nutritional sciences. He also is director of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Clinic at Banner – University Medical Center Tucson.
