Sleep in women: normal sleep and circadian rhythms across the female lifespan
28 July 2020

The changes associated with puberty, the menstrual cycle, and menopause have been put into the 'too hard' basket rather than being seen as an opportunity for novel and life-changing research. This webinar discusses normal sleep and circadian rhythms in women and the impact of hormonal and other physiological differences across the lifespan. This webinar forms a vital foundation for identifying and managing sleep and circadian disorders in women.
