Upcoming Doc Talk Focuses on Sleep Quality
Moderated by Casey Curry
The Women’s Fund for Health Education and Resiliency (The Women’s Fund) will present Living to the Fullest: Maximizing Sleep and its Benefits, with Melanie Baxter, senior director of Investment & Wellness at alliantgroup, as the next Doc Talk. The free event, which will include lunch, is open to the public and will be presented on Thursday September 28, 2023 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. online and at the offices of alliantgroup, 3009 Post Oak Blvd, Ste. 2000.
The noon-hour presentation will focus on sleep quality, something that is often overlooked when we focus on our health regimens. Although physical wellness, including nutrition and exercise, are important in order for us to live our best lives, we must remember that sleep is also key. Houston’s sleep experts will join the discussion and offer ways to improve sleep quality.
Doc Talk, one of many free women’s outreach education programs offered by The Women’s Fund, is a series of conversations with medical professionals on cutting-edge and trending health topics. Moderated by Casey Curry, Doc Talk is funded in part by the John P. McGovern Foundation and sponsored by alliantgroup.
