Sleepio, a sleep wellness program offered by the CU Health Plan, next week presents a webinar on the importance of sleep and how it can improve your overall health and well-being.
“The Science of Sleep: Sleeping Your Way to Health and Happiness” is hosted by Big Health, the makers of Sleepio, and is set for noon-1 p.m. July 28 exclusively for CU Health Plan members. In the webinar, learn about different sleep needs at different life stages, gain information about sleep disorders, and discover specific ways to optimize your sleep through good sleep hygiene, a regular sleep/wake schedule, and understanding the bed/sleep connection.
The event also will feature a discussion of ways to protect sleep, including an overview of the Sleepio program, available to CU faculty and staff.
The webinar will be led by Jennifer Kanady, clinical innovation lead for sleep at Big Health. She has been involved in the sleep field for over a decade, and has over a dozen peer-reviewed publications. In addition to her research endeavors, Kanady has a strong background in the administration of evidence-based sleep interventions, with a particular expertise in cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia.
A recording of "The Science of Sleep" webinar will be distributed to all registered participants, allowing anyone unable to attend to review the presentation. The CU Health Plan and its wellness program vendors will continue to facilitate wellness webinars, so stay tuned.
