Students to hear about a good night’s sleep

Mercer Island High School students have the opportunity to hear about how important sleep is from someone other than their parents. Dr. Ralph Pascualy, M.D., will speak on Thursday, Feb. 16, during both lunches at Mercer Island High School. Dr. Pascualy was invited to speak by the new Mercer Island High School science club named “PETRI.”

Pascualy, a neurologist, established the nation’s first Sleep Disorders Center in Washington in 1984, and is the director of Sleep Medicine Associates. Dr. Pascualy will be giving an informative and entertaining overview on how sleep impacts the teen brain, backed by the latest science and social research. He will share how sleep impacts health, behavior and grades.
