Sleep: The Next Frontier in Wellness?


Mary Jane Osmick, MD
VP, Medical Director, for Medical Services Department, American Specialty Health (ASH)


Session Description

Sleep: It’s as basic to life as breathing. So, why are so many Americans getting so little of it?

Sleep-deprived Americans are driving, working and parenting in a mental fog. Increasingly, employers are expressing concerns over this sleep-debt epidemic and with good reason.

A sleep-deprived workforce can lead to increased absenteeism, presenteeism, on-the-job accidents and hospitalizations.

In this session you’ll learn:

  • statistics that reveal  how prevalent the sleep deficit is in America
  • the main culprits driving the epidemic of non-sleep
  • strategies to encourage better sleep among employees
  • how improved sleep behaviors can pay off for your workforce and your business.
