May 11th RiverView Health Luncheon to Focus on Sleep

Hospital news | Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Sleep. Are you getting enough? Too much? If you take your health seriously, you understand that how you get through the night makes a difference in how you get through your day. If counting sheep just isn’t cutting it, attend RiverView’s Friday, May 11th health luncheon, “The Significance of Sleep’’ to learn ways to improve your overall wellbeing with RiverView Pediatrician and Sleep Specialist Dr. Arveity Setty.

Sleep is essential for a person’s health and wellbeing. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental and physical health, as well as your quality of life and safety.

The way you feel while you’re awake depends in part on what happens while you’re sleeping. During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, at least 40 million Americans suffer from over 70 different sleep disorders and 60 percent of adults report having sleep problems a few nights a week or more. Most of those with sleep issues go undiagnosed and untreated. In addition, more than 40 percent of adults experience daytime sleepiness severe enough to interfere with their daily activities at least a few days each month – with 20 percent reporting problem sleepiness a few days a week or more.

Luncheon Details

The luncheon will be held in Meeting Room #1 of RiverView Health, 323 S. Minnesota Street, Crookston. Meeting Room #1 is located near the RiverView Clinic entrance on the north side of the building and across from the elevators on first floor.
