About this event

Retreat on Behavioral, Environmental, and Social Determinants of Sleep and Circadian Health and their Relationship to Sleep Health Disparities

The primary goal is to collectively advance the expertise and research interests of our workforce to generate evidence that improves the health of all individuals, in particular those who have faced historic and systemic marginalization. This event will include presentations on the current state of knowledge in the field, appropriate methodology and translation to practice. There will be ample time for discussion.

This event is free, but registration is required. In-person capacity is limited. This event will be simulcast virtually.

Dinner seating is limited and first priority will be provided to the people attending the day-long retreat.
