Sleeping Your Way to the Top
The Importance of Being Well Rested While Building Your Career
We grow and repair cells at a faster rate while sleeping and neurons in the brain reconnect or make new connections, which consolidates memory and improves focus. Sleep helps clean our brains of “garbage”, energizes you, and improves your mood and immune system.
Geared for those under 40, this millennial event, thanks to Founding Partner RBC, focuses on the importance of sleep to protect your brain health.
Guest Speaker: Dr. Nasreen Khatri, Registered clinical psychologist and researcher at Baycrest’s Rotman Research Institute
Emcee: Nazeefah Laher, MPH
Enjoy cocktails and light refreshments.
