SULLIVAN 180 TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR HEALTH
WORKSHOP SERIES III
Dr. Azizi Seixas Presents
Sleep Well! Live Well! The Importance of Sleep
[FERNDALE] – Sullivan 180 welcomes Dr. Azizi Seixas, Assistant Professor at NYU School of Medicine, in the Department of Population Health and Psychiatry and NBC Sleep Expert, as guest speaker for the bi-monthly Take Charge of Your Health Series. In his presentation, Dr. Seixas will discuss the role of sleep to overall health, the consequences of chronic sleep deficit and tips on how to get a good night’s rest. The presentation is on Thursday, June 20, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. at SUNY Sullivan in the Seelig Theatre.
The importance of adequate sleep is often overlooked when we think about achieving and sustaining good health and yet sleep impacts almost every aspect of our health and wellbeing from maintaining a healthy weight, to our mental and emotional wellbeing. We live in a society where chronic sleep deprivation is rampant and accepted as normal. Starting with young people and through all stages of life, many people do not receive adequate sleep. We often dismiss this lack of sleep as a necessary accommodation in our modern and digitally fast paced lives. Dr. Seixas will help us understand the real cost to our health of not receiving adequate sleep and ways we can improve our sleep habits. It is an issue that affects us on both a personal and community level.
Dr. Seixas’ research and work includes: sleep and cardiovascular disease disparities, long-term health consequences of cardiovascular disease (CVD) disparities, and developing adaptive, grouptailored, and personalized behavior modification interventions, with the use of machine learning analytical tools, to improve health and well-being.
The informative and encouraging evening will include healthy refreshments. The event is free, but registration is required. To register visit www.Sullivan180.org or call Sullivan 180 at (845)295-2680.
