2019 Peace of Mind Lecture Series
Please join us on Wednesday, October 30th, at 6:30 PM for our Peace of Mind Lecture
Sleep and Epilepsy
There is a unique bidirectional relationship between sleep and epilepsy, whereby epilepsy can disrupt sleep, and sleep influences epilepsy. Since the optimization of sleep may improve epilepsy, patients with epilepsy need to ensure they have a good quality of sleep. In this talk, Dr. Lee will be explaining the unique relationship between sleep and epilepsy, providing recommendations on healthy sleep habits, and explaining common sleep disorders and their symptoms. She will also clarify when it may be appropriate to seek a sleep consultation.
