Froedtert doctor to speak on “Importance of Sleep and Hazards of Non Sleep”

Dr. B. Tucker Woodson, the director of the Froedtert Hospital/Medical College of Wisconsin Sleep Disorders Program, will give a presentation on the “Importance of Sleep and Hazards of Non Sleep.”

The event is scheduled for Wednesday, May 13 at 6:30 p.m. at University Lake School, 4024 Nagawicka Road in Hartland.  

Chronic sleepiness is a plague in modern society that worsens quality of life, increases risks of accidents and poor performance, and carries negative effects on long-term health.  Much attention is given to sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, while other even more common disorders are overlooked.  Topics of both normal and abnormal sleep will be open for discussion.

“Importance of Sleep and Hazards of Non Sleep” is the final presentation in the spring 2015 “Medical Speaker Series” presented by University Lake School, in partnership with Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Community Education Program.

Woodson has served on Sleep Disorders, Standards of Practice, New Medical, Drug and Device, and the National Sleep Medicine Course Committees of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. He also serves as an advisor for the American Sleep Apnea Association. Woodson will be available for discussions after his presentation.
