Awakening to the Significance of Sleep and Health Disparities: A Global Evolutionary Perspective

Sleep is a critically important aspect of human biology and health that varies in relation to environmental, social, and cultural factors. Recent findings are linking sleep disparities to health disparities, and providing new insights to the evolution and function of sleep. This symposium will explore emerging connections between changing environments, disrupted sleep, and health outcomes in the US and globally.SpeakersOrfeu Buxton, Penn State & HarvardDaniel Forger, University of MichiganAlyssa Gamaldo, Penn StateLauren Hale, Stoney BrookHoracio de la Iglesia, University of WashingtonChandra Jackson, Harvard & NIEHSBenjamin Reiss, EmoryFrank Scheer, Harvard
