The Gift of Sleep

With Nalaka S. Gooneratne, M.D., M.Sc.

December 7th at 2:00pm

 

Remember how easy it was when you were five years old? Perhaps you checked for monsters under the bed, but once your head hit the pillow you were transported to dreamland.  Alas, our sleep abilities and habits change throughout our lives.

 

Join Penn’s Village as Dr. Gooneratne shares findings from his clinical and research focus -sleep disorders of older adults.

 

An Associate Professor of Medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and the Presbyterian Medical Center of Philadelphia, Dr. Gooneratne runs a Sleep Disorders Clinic for Seniors. He has a strong interest in the attitudes of senior citizens towards their sleep problems and how their background informs their decisions.

 

We will again meet in the historic and beautiful Atheneum. The Atheneum is located at 219 South 6thStreet. The handicapped entrance is at the rear of the building.

Please RSVP by emailing info@pennsvillage.org. If emailing is inconvenient, call 215.925.7333.

 

There is no charge for Penn’s Village members and volunteers. We would appreciate a $5 donation from other guests.
