The Impact of Sleep by Dr. Charles Czeisler, M.D., Ph.D.
Dr. Charles Czeisler will explain the impact of sleep on brain function and physical health. Recently, increased stress from the COVID pandemic and other issues have affected sleep patterns. Inadequate sleep may impair physical health, by dampening the immune response, disrupting hormones that regulate weight, reducing insulin metabolism. Dr. Czeisler will give tips and tools to help you improve your sleep.
Dr. Charles Czeisler, Ph.D. M.D. is Chief of the Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Professor of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
