Nearly one-third of Americans are sleep deprived according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Other studies have linked the lack of sleep to depression, a weaker immune system, memory and cognition issues, as well as obesity, high blood pressure and fatigue. The CDC calls this pervasive lack of sleep a “public health epidemic”. This series of workshops will delve into the underlying causes of sleep deprivation and offer tangible solutions.
When: May 23, June 20, July 18, and August 22 from 6:30pm – 8pm
Where: In the Annex 8607 Rhode Island Ave. College Park, MD 20740
