Just as eating doesn't make you a nutritionist, neither does sleeping make you an expert in sleep and the workplace. This fast-paced, dynamic, and information-packed talk will take a light-hearted but serious approach to managing fatigue at work and in everyday life.
A neuroscientist by training, Dr. Shappell will share research on sleep cycle strategies and other aspects of fatigue management that can significantly influence our performance at work –and overall health. The principles Dr. Shappell will reveal in this colloquium are the same techniques taught to military pilots and Special Forces to enhance performance and reduce fatigue in 24/7 operations.
