Teen Sleep A to Zzzz: Improving Well Being Through Adequate Sleep
May 3, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
An expert panel led by Craig Canapari, MD, Director of Yale Pediatric Sleep Center, will explain the short- and long-term effects of inadequate sleep on adolescent physical and mental health, the importance of school start times, and strategies for optimizing teen sleep.
Following Dr. Canapari’s keynote presentation, local pediatrician William Flynn, MD, of New Canaan Pediatrics will speak about teen sleep patterns that he sees in his own practice. Dr. Flynn, trusted by generations of New Canaan families, also treats infants through teens from neighboring towns like Wilton, which changed to a later start time in 2003, and Greenwich, which changed in 2017. Tracey Masella, LCSW, from Silver Hill Hospital will describe the link between sleep and anxiety.
