Is sleep loss a health risk? Find out April 25 at CCNY’s Mini-Medical School

Getting enough sleep can be a struggle. But according to The National Center For Health Research, the gap between getting just enough sleep and getting too little may affect your health, your mood, your weight, and your ability to concentrate.

Find out why organizations like the National Football League are prioritizing sleep and you should too – on April 25 at the CUNY School of Medicine’s Mini-Medical School at The City College of New York.
