Sleep, School Start Times, and Education Modality

Dr. Lisa Meltzer, guest

Just in time for the return to school, we sit down with Dr Lisa Meltzer to discuss two vital papers at the intersect of sleep, school start times, and education modality among pediatrics, adolescents, and teenagers. Lisa Meltzer is a Professor of Pediatrics at National Jewish Health and a Professor of Family Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. She is a licensed clinical psychologist who is certified in Behavioral Sleep Medicine by the American Board of Sleep Medicine, and is a Diplomate of the Board of Behavioral Sleep Medicine. Dr. Meltzer’s funded program of research has examined sleep across development, the impact of pediatric chronic illnesses on sleep in children/adolescents and their parents, objective and subjective measures of pediatric sleep, the impact of changing school start times on health outcomes, and socio-ecological factors that contribute to sleep health disparities in toddlers and school-aged children.
