According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Epidemiology Program, ‘Poor sleep health is a common problem with 25 percent of U.S. adults reporting insufficient sleep or rest at least 15 out of every 30 days’.   The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion states that public health burden of chronic sleep loss and sleep disorders, coupled with low awareness of poor sleep health among the general population, health care professionals, and policymakers, necessitates a well-coordinated strategy to improve sleep-related health.

In addition to sleep, a healthy diet and physical activity result in fewer chronic diseases.

As a part of lifelong learning focus on a healthy body and a healthy mind, please join us at Kimball Library for Nutrition and Sleep: What is the Connection?
