The latest in sleep

Listen 00:48:46

Guests: Sigrid Veasy, Karl Dogrhamji

The onslaught of advertising devoted to improving, correcting, and ensuring a good night’s sleep suggests that sleep-related issues are predominant in America. The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last year declared insufficient sleep to be a public health epidemic. Today on Radio Times, we’ve invited two sleep researchers on our show to discuss the ways to improve sleeping behavior and the importance of getting a sufficient night’s rest. DR. SIGRID VEASY is professor of medicine at University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and a member of the Center for Sleep and Circadian Neurobiology, and DR. KARL DOGHRAMJI is a physician at Jefferson University and the director of Jefferson’s Sleep Disorder Center.
