Lakewood to hold sleep event

Lakewood Health System's Respiratory Therapy department, along with the Women's Health team, will host a women's sleep event June 12 at 5:30 p.m. in the lower level classrooms at Lakewood's Senior Campus (401 Prairie Ave. NE, Staples), according to a press release sent to the Pioneer Journal.

The free program will include a presentation by Kelly Thompson, NP-C, a panel of experts (including a sleep specialist and a sleep study patient), complimentary refreshments, door prizes and an optional tour of the remodeled sleep lab.

The release added that 70 percent of women suffer from some type of sleeping disorder, and women are two times more likely to suffer from a sleeping disorder than men.
