Clinicians receive little exposure to sleep medicine in medical training and often have limited knowledge of sleep disorders. Understanding how to diagnose and treat sleep disorders can allow clinicians to improve a patient’s quality of life and overall health. This course is tailored to clinicians who have an interest in Sleep Medicine. It allows those currently working in the field to learn the most up to date information on sleep disorders, while providing a multidisciplinary approach they can share it with their teams.

On Monday, February 5th, the Northwest AHEC Team came together for a special gathering and team engagement activity in honor of American Heart Month. This month is dedicated to raising awareness about heart disease in women, and it coincides with National Wear Red Day. We were thrilled to support this important cause and kick off our year with a team outing at the Hanes Mall in Winston-Salem.
Fact: Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. It’s a third of our mothers, sisters, friends, neighbors, coworkers and more. Heart disease and stroke can affect a woman at any age, making it vital for all women to understand their personal risk factors and family history. Losing even one woman to cardiovascular disease is too many. More than one in three women is living with some form of cardiovascular disease. 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be prevented.
Know the warning signs of heart attack and stroke, you could save your life!
