Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
It is estimated that 85 percent of adolescents are sleep deprived, compromising their academic performance and putting them at higher risk for accidents and health-related issues. With the proper amount of sleep, teens report feeling better and less stressed. Their grades and athletic performance improve, they experience fewer sick days, and they are less prone to obesity and type 2 diabetes. This program, hosted by Sleepless in America author Mary Sheedy Kurcinka, Ed. D, helps teens identify sleep deprivation and understand its risks while providing strategies for getting more sleep.
