Sleep & Health Webinar Registration Open

We are pleased to announce that on 12 July at 17:00 CEST, the ESRS will host a webinar addressing Sleep & Health.  

It can never be said too often – sleep is a critical aspect of our lives. This is clearly evidenced by the bidirectional relationship it has with the overall health of our body, brain and mind. We know that getting too little can have adverse effects not only on health, but also on performance. The latter was previously explored in a past webinar on the adverse effects of sleep deprivation. 

The focus of this webinar is on physical health, because quantity and quality of sleep, has a profound impact on our health, which then has an impact on every other aspect of our lives. 

This webinar will be moderated by Prof. Dr. Claudio Bassetti, President of the European Academy of Neurology and Professor of Neurology and Director of the Department of Neurology at the University Hospital in Bern, Switzerland. During the webinar, he will not only moderate, but will also present on sleep and brain health. Featured speakers include Prof. Dr. Dirk Pevernagie (The Netherlands/Belgium) and Prof. Dr. Tiina Paunio (Finland).  

As a pulmonologist as well as an Associate Professor of Internal Medicine and Paediatrics at Ghent University, Prof. Dr. Dirk Pevernagie will deliver a presentaiton on sleep and body health. 

In the last segment of the webinar, Prof. Dr. Tina Paunio, Professor of Psychiatry and Vice Dean of Education at the University of Helsinki, will lead an interactive roundtable discussion on how to assess sleep and health.  

With many years of sleep research and sleep medicine experience between them, these speakers are established experts in sleep and we are looking forward to an interesting and interactive webinar. 

Registration for this webinar is now open – we encourage you to sign up right away, as places are limited.

A few things to note about this webinar:

  • Registration is required for attendance, and is open until 5 July 2022 
  • The webinar is offered by ESRS and is free and open to all
