Can Technology Solve Our Sleep Problems? Tonight On City Visions, KALW 91.7 FM

Sleep — or more like the lack of a good night of it — is shaping up to be the new health craze.  Silicon Valley entrepreneurs are betting big time on it, investing time and money to develop devices they claim will monitor and improve the quality of our rest.

Are we really doing a bad job sleeping these days?  What are the consequences?  And will these new technologies help us get a better night’s sleep?

Join me tonight at 7pm on City Visions, on local public radio KALW San Francisco, as I host a discussion on the current state of sleep with:

  • Clete Kushida, M.D., Ph.D., neurologist and professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford; Medical Director of the Stanford Sleep Medicine Center; and Director of the Stanford Center for Human Sleep Research.
  • Nancy H. Rothstein, MBA, known as The Sleep Ambassador and Director of CIRCADIAN Corporate Sleep Programs.  Nancy serves on NIH Sleep Disorders Research Advisory Board and on the Steering Committee of MyApnea.org.
  • Liz Rockett, MBA, MPH, director with Kaiser Permanente Ventures, where she invests in healthcare IT, digital health and technology-enabled services.

You can tune in on 91.7 FM in the Bay Area or by streaming the show on-line.  Please send us your questions for discussion on the air!
