ACADI Seminar Series, June16: Sweet Dreams: Unravelling the impact of sleep on diabetes management
Sleep is one of the main pillars of health, yet the impact of poor sleep on diabetes management is less well studied. On Friday 16th June, 2-3pm, Professor Elif Ekinci will be joined by Dr Cecilia Pham, who will explore the significance of sleep and sleep health in individuals living with diabetes.
The presentation will also feature guest speakers who will share their personal experiences with sleep disturbance and the impact it has had on the management of their diabetes.
