CCHS PA: High Schoolers and Snooze Buttons: The New Public Health Crisis
Please join the CCHS PA for an important evening that will take an in-depth look at what is being called an epidemic and national crisis for American high schoolers: insufficient sleep. An esteemed panel of speakers led by Dr. Judith Owens from Boston Children’s Sleep Center will review current research on sleep patterns in adolescents, factors contributing to chronic sleep loss, and health-related consequences, such as depression, risky behaviors, increased obesity risk, and higher rates of drowsy driving accidents. The panel will also discuss the potential role of policy changes such as reduced homework and later school start times as a means of reducing the adolescent sleep crisis.
