About the Webinar: Sleep disruption has been linked to increased risk of substance abuse, suicide, school-based violence, and a host of medical disorders such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Because of changes in sleep that occur during puberty, early school start times directly impede healthy teen sleep.This webinar will provide an overview of the research supporting later school start times for adolescents, and educate social workers on ways they can intervene to improve outcomes for Ohio's children
