The program for August 20th will be on the topic of sleep disorders a/k/a Sleep Apnea. Tossing, turning or snoring at night not only leaves you sleepy, it could signal a serious health issue. During sleep apnea your body stops breathing and prevents normal healing. It can deprive the heart of needed oxygen. Our guest speaker, Dr. Stanley Wang with the Heart Hospital Sleep Disorders Center will discuss how we can improve our sleep. Getting enough sleep is critical to our well-being. It helps our bodies heal, lowers blood pressure, gives us more energy and reduces the risk of heart problems. That's why knowing what's causing your sleep issues and taking action could be a real lifesaver. Dr. Wang, a cardiologist, earned his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical School in Dallas. He also holds a J.D. degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School and a Masters of Public Health from Harvard.Contact Tom Bauer, 512-743-6364 if you need a ride to the AARP meeting
