Sleep is critical to good health, and not getting enough quality sleep can be dangerous, increasing your risk of having an accident and impairing your ability to think clearly. Menopause is a natural part of aging and marks the end of a woman’s childbearing years. Unfortunately, hot flashes, night sweats and the change in hormone levels that trigger menopause can also disrupt women’s sleep. Join us to learn some simple bedtime routines that can go a long way toward ensuring a good night’s sleep. Register for this free event online at or call 864-560-2229.
