  • Sleep: the Fourth Pillar of Health

    This B·Debate, a joint initiative of Biocat and “la Caixa" Foundation, is co-organized with the Global Observatory for Healthy Sleep, the Biomedical Research Institute of Lleida and AdSalutem Institute.

    The event seeks to promote an open discussion between researchers, clinicians, social and cultural leaders and organizations, business and unions representatives, politicians and media, to raise awareness on the importance of quality sleep in health and disease. To accomplish this goal, this B·DEBATE will address pressing questions on sleep research and its impact on society. These include the use of big data and wearable technologies in sleep research, monitoring and policy making, the emerging role of informed patients in diagnosis and decision making, the multifaceted impact of sleep in productivity and economics, the important role of sleep as a comorbid condition in multiple diseases and the importance of sleep in understudied and vulnerable populations, such as infants and the elderly.

    The debate will close with a summary session on “Sleep for healthy ageing” assessing how research, analysis, training and dissemination initiatives can be leveraged to effect sociopolitical changes on the perception of quality sleep and sleep-related disorders.
