Students Dream Up Ideas About Sleep

Student sitting on bed tests breathing aparatus.jpgSleep hygiene was a focus of the Board's Mental Health and Well-being Strategic Plan during the school year.  The intent was to inform students of the importance of proper sleep habits - specifically how it can impact their school work.

The students reviewed the equipment they use at the clinic to determine sleep disorders and discussed proper sleep hygiene with the staff to develop their communications strategy.  An additional benefit of this excursion was to learn about the different career pathways followed for employment in this healthcare field.
