) . Dr. Wu’s current research focuses on treating sleep disorders in those with chronic illness. In the clinic, her approach is grounded in both science and compassion.
We discuss how much sleep you actually need, why 8 hours sleep duration may not be the holy grail, what happens to sleep as you age, evidence-backed treatments for insomnia and much more. This is a gem of a conversation you do not want to miss.
