How to Sleep for Success
Everything you must know
but are too tired to ask!
with Rebecca Robbins
Did you sleep at all during finals week?
Sleep is critical for our health, well-being, productivity, and longevity, but the vast majority of us do not get enough. Many of us also report poor quality sleep. Join us to learn about the science behind sleep and the strategies for improving your sleep, health, and happiness.
Our speaker, Dr. Rebecca Robbins, is a researcher at the NYU School of Medicine. In her research, Rebecca examines the link between sleep and our waking success, specifically the vital role sleep plays in our memory, cognition, health, and longevity. She co-authored a book summarizing these findings entitled "Sleep for Success!" with Cornell Professor James B. Maas. Her work has been featured in the New York Times and on the Today Show, Fox News, and CBS.
