Join Josiane Broussard, PhD as she explains the links between sleep, circadian disruption, cardiovascular function, and metabolic health.
Josiane presents an overview and background on this topic before diving into 2-3 recent studies on the effects of sleep and sleep disruption on insulin resistance, metabolism, and health. She concludes with potential countermeasures when sleep and circadian disruption are unavoidable.
Key Topics Include:
- There is a link between sleep and health
- Not getting enough sleep or sleeping at the wrong time increases the risk for many diseases
- Prioritizing sleep duration and quality should be a focus to promote optimal health
