The Moms’ Network Parent Workshop with Dr. Richard Simon
On Wednesday, May 6th at Garrison Middle School, Dr. Richard Simon, Sleep Medicine Expert, will be speaking on teen sleep patterns, teen sleep needs and the correlation with school start times. “The American Academy of Pediatrics states that sleep deprivation in teens is one of the most common, and easily fixable, public-health issues in the U.S,” states Beth Swanson, President of the Moms’ Network. “We are excited to have Dr. Simon available to share the research with parents, teachers and school officials so we are better educated on our children’s health.”
Factual information will be provided on how important it is that teens receive the correct amount of sleep for their health and well-being. We will also discuss Start School Later, an initiative to begin school later in the morning for at least middle and high school students.
The event is part of the 2014-15 Moms’ Network Parent Workshops that provide educational information to strengthen families in the Walla Walla Valley.
The workshop at Garrison Middle School is free, open to the public and will begin at with a family dinner provided by Sweet Basil. The presentation with Dr. Simon will begin promptly at . Child care and Spanish translation is available during the presentation.
