Description of Presentation
John Winkelman, MD, PhD, is a Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, and Chief of the Sleep Disorders Clinical Research Program in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital. Previously, he was the Sleep Director at McLean Hospital and at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Two of his specialty areas are restless leg syndrome and insomnia.

Given how important and broad the topic of sleep is, we are very fortunate that Dr. Winkelman is able to offer us two sessions on sleep: one on Tuesday, September 26, and the second on Tuesday, November 28.

The September one will include a description of Dr. Winkelman’s background, including how he chose sleep as an area of focus, and what the key research findings are about the links between sleep and physical/mental well-being, followed by addressing individual audience sleep-related questions.

In the November session, Dr. Winkelman will focus on the most common sleep disorders and the effective approaches to addressing them. He will also offer suggestions for general sleep hygiene and answer individual audience questions.

Come join us for this two-part conversation about sleep!
