Online | 7th Annual Sung Symposium: Sleep for Well-being

The 2024 Sung Symposium explores how sleep affects whole health—and how well-being affects sleep.
7th Annual Sung Symposium: Sleep & Well-being



Janette Rodrigues, administrative director, Office of Integrative Medicine & Health,

A good night of sleep should have you feeling well-rested the next day. Research suggests that almost a third of us drag ourselves out of bed in the morning without enough good-quality sleep, which means we could feel better during the day.

If you feel tired upon waking, or throughout the day, you may be experiencing 
underlying issues that are impacting your night’s rest. Any number of things can
contribute to poor sleep quality including poor sleep hygiene, stress, sleep apnea or another primary sleep disorder, or another chronic health condition.

Learn more about this and how to have restorative sleep at the 7th Annual Patrick & Marguerite Sung Symposium: Sleep & Well-being. We will explore the following topics during a half-day event from 1 - 5 p.m. ET on Friday, March 8, 2024:
