Treating Sleep Disorder Patients with Fitness and Nutrition Programming

Sleep disorders are highly prevalent, have global implications and have significant impact on the health and well-being of individuals. The importance of personalized health care is being increasingly recognized, and sleep medicine has been partnering with the wellness industry to better address root causes of sleep disorders. This talk will review the epidemiology and prevalence of sleep disorders, review how sleep centers can partner with health clubs and share how to collaborate with other clinicians. Models of healthcare integration between health clubs and healthcare from both a health outcome and revenue stream will also be presented.
