Are you getting enough sleep? If not, you may be impacting your health.

That is at least part of the message that Dr. Matthew Walker will bring to his keynote address at the virtual Sun Valley Wellness Festival. His online talk “Sleep is Your Superpower” will take place on Saturday, Aug. 22 at 6:30 p.m. The talk is available to Wellness Festival participants through Sept. 7.

Walker is a former professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and currently is professor of neuroscience and psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. He is also the founder and director of the Center for Human Sleep Science at the University of California, Berkeley. Walker is the author of the New York Times best seller “Why We Sleep” which, according to a press release, concludes with “a provocative new vision for sleep in the modern world—one that aims to solve the greatest public-health challenge we now face: the global sleep-loss epidemic.”
