The current pandemic and the resulting restrictions have caused extensive disruption to our daily lives. 

These changes generate stress that can interfere with our sleep.

What are the consequences of this stress for our sleep patterns? Why is it important to take care of our sleep requirements in this time of crisis, especially for the most vulnerable? How can we maintain good sleep quality under these conditions?

All of these questions will be addressed in our online conference.
