“SLEEP DISORDERS IN CHILDREN: MORE COMMON THAN YOU THINK” TOPIC OF FREE LECTURE SPONSORED BY WINTHROP-UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL MARCH 8

Parents – does your child suffer from excessive daytime drowsiness or have trouble staying asleep? Although minor sleep problems are common in childhood, studies have shown that sleep disorders can and do occur in children and adolescents, leading to difficulties such as deficits in school performance and adverse health consequences. Learning to recognize the signs of a possible sleep disorder and when to seek an evaluation can make a difference in a child’s health and well-being.

Parents and caregivers can learn what they need to know at Winthrop-University Hospital’s free Parenting Today lecture, “Sleep Disorders in Children: More Common Than You Think,” on Thursday, March 8, 2012. The program begins with registration at 6:45 PM, followed by the lecture at 7:00 and will be held at Winthrop’s Community Outreach Center, located at 101 Mineola Boulevard, at the corner of Second Street in Mineola.

Christina Valsamis, MD, Pediatric Pulmonologist at Winthrop and board certified sleep physician, will discuss normal sleep patterns, the signs and symptoms of a sleep disorder, the evaluation process, and the latest advances in treatment. A question and answer period will follow the lecture.

Attendees are asked to arrive at 6:45 PM for registration. Parking and the entrance are available in the rear of the building. Admission is free, but seating is limited and pre-registration is required. To reserve a space, please call (516) 663-8305.

The program is presented by the Department of Public Affairs in cooperation with the Department of Pediatrics, part of the Children’s Medical Center at Winthrop-University Hospital. For information on other programs at the Hospital, please call 1-866-WINTHROP.
