||Focus on you wellness lecture
Health and wellness lecture in observance of American Heart Month.
Are you not getting enough sleep? If so, join the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute's (NHBLI) foremost expert on sleep research, Michael J. Twery, Ph.D., to learn what's at stake for your heart — and what you can do to get your sleep on track.
Learn how inadequate sleep affects your body chemistry. Did you know that your heart and blood vessels lose some of their ability to fight damage? Did you also know that not enough sleep can lead to stress, overeating, weight gain and even obesity? Dr. Twery will also talk about new discoveries that highlight the critical roles natural light, a regular sleep schedule, wholesome eating, and exercise can play in helping you feel rested each morning — and heart-healthy over your lifetime.
