Crouse Hospital Presents Tired of Being Tired on Thursday, July 12

06/21/12

Sleep Seminar 7-2012 newsRecent studies show a growing link between sleep disorders and a variety of serious health problems, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, inability to concentate and depression. It's estimated that about 70 million people have sleep-related problems, while about 40 million people suffer from actual sleep disorders. Lack of quality sleep creates fatigue but, more importantly, snoring and sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome, can make getting a good night’s sleep extremely difficult and contribute to the development of chronic diseases.

For those who experience trouble sleeping (or their loved ones), Crouse Hospital is presenting "Tired of Being Tired?," a seminar scheduled for 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 12. Stephen Alkins, MD, medical director of the Sleep Center at Crouse Hospital, and David Wolfe, MSEd, RT, RPSGT, AE-C, educational coordinator, will be the featured speakers.


This free program, part of the hospital’s ongoing community health education series, will provide a comprehensive overview of the causes of sleeplessness and the latest in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. The program will be held at the hospital’s Marley Education Center, 765 Irving Avenue. To register call 472-2464. Free parking is available in the Marley garage and Crouse Hospital garage.

The six-bed Sleep Center at Crouse Hospital is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, a national professional organization that sets the highest standards in sleep medicine diagnosis and treatment.
