Join us for a free workshop on improving sleep with Kristen Rainey ’97, current CEO of Northstar Sleep School and former global program manager of Google Food.

In this workshop, we will learn what happens overnight to your body and mind, and why prioritizing sleep is the #1 lifestyle change you can make to increase productivity, health, and well being, especially as we serve as leaders at our workplace, in our homes, and in our communities.

  • What does sleep do for you?
  • What happens to your body when you don’t get enough sleep?
  • Why are none of us getting enough?
  • What minor and major changes can you make to have noticeable improvements in your sleep?

To obtain the full experience of the workshop, keep track of your nightly sleep seven days prior to the Zoom workshop.

We will be in good company, as other Bay Area Ivy alumni associations and the Princeton Alumni of New England have been invited to attend! Thanks to the Northern California Chapter of the Columbia Alumni Association for gathering RSVPs and sending the Zoom link.
