SPECIAL LECTURE: Learning the Hard Way – the Symptoms and Risk of Untreated Obstructive Sleep Apnea

March 12th @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Laing Rikkers is a leader in the field of Obstructive Sleep Apnea, an often hidden – and potentially fatal – medical condition. Though OSA is estimated to affect 75 million Americans, most people don’t even know they have it. Tragically, that was the case with her sister who died of undiagnosed OSA. In her grief, Laing sought solace from nature and creativity, and her new book Morning Leaves provides a path for self-exploration, connection, and healing from loss. Her mission now is to save lives by encouraging people to pay attention to the symptoms of OSA so they can better care for themselves and their loved ones. Join us for a special presentation at the library to learn about the risk factors and symptoms of sleep apnea sleep disorder and how to talk about it with your doctor.
