Sleeping on the job can be dangerous in some professions. Sleep expert Dr. Kathryn Reid, from Northwestern University, will join us on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm to talk about her latest research on sleep, and why it’s so important to our health and well-being.

Dr. Reid has written several articles on sleep research. For more information about these studies, click on the links below.

    I along with Phil Ponce and many others have trouble with various aspects of sleep so when I heard that a sleep specialist would be on the program talking about this I was expecting some useful information.

    Instead I heard facts and tips I have already heard many times before.
    I didn’t learn anything.

    So, you shouldn’t drink coffee too close to bed time – really?

    Peggy, I believe the topic was on “sleeping on the job” as it is related to performance, and was not intended to be a talk on individual diagnosis. For this you need to schedule an appointment with your physician as sleep is a highly individualized experience.
