Title: Understanding Families’ Sleep Health Using a Social-Ecological Approach

Sleep is critical for health and well-being across the lifespan. Research shows that people sleep better when they feel psychologically secure and physically safe. Dr. Kane and Dr. Slavish will use the social-ecological model of sleep health as a framework for understanding how community and neighborhood factors, family dynamics, and individual factors affect parents’ and children’s sleep during the early childrearing years. They will also highlight ways to promote good sleep during this critical period of development. 

This talk will be held virtually only.

Register for the April 8 talk.
