Not Tonight, Morpheus, I Have a Deadline” with Dr. Anne Bartolucci of Atlanta Insomnia & Behavioral Health Services, P.C.

Sleep is often the first good habit to get tossed aside when we’re overwhelmed with juggling family, work, and social obligations. Come hear a sleep medicine expert dispel common myths and discuss strategies and work-arounds that will help you meet that deadline without losing Zzzz’s. Based in scientific evidence, this talk will focus on how sleep and circadian rhythms affect when you do your best work. We’ll also discuss which sleep devices on the market are worth the money and when you should consider consulting a sleep expert. It is possible to be productive and well-rested – come find out how!

Anne Bartolucci, Ph.D., C.B.S.M. sleeps great in spite of having a busy private practice and a fiction writing career. She is one of the few certified behavioral sleep medicine specialists outside of academia in the country and one of only two in Georgia. The other one works for her. She founded Atlanta Insomnia & Behavioral Health Services in 2010 and enjoys making a huge difference in her clients’ lives by helping them sleep better.
