Sleep & Healthy Aging

The 2018 Sleep and Healthy Aging Symposium is taking place on 14-15 September 2018 in Hoboken, NJ, USA at the W Hoboken Hotel. We encourage professionals from the entire healthcare team – psychiatrists, neurologists, geriatricians, primary care physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists and more to attend!

With a focus on sleep and healthy aging, this meeting will feature a distinguished international faculty of experts and will appeal to scientists and clinicians alike. Covering topics from basic science to clinical management, we expect a diverse group of attendees.

The role of sleep in the health, neurology, cognition and mental health of older adults will be presented with ample time for discussion and questions. Opportunities to present new data and innovative clinical protocols in poster form will be provided. The meeting will take place at the beautiful W Hotel in Hoboken New Jersey, across the river from Manhattan, with easy access to international airports.
