Sleep and Cardiometabolic Disease

(IRB#: IRB_00164764)

Cardiometabolic disease may put a person at risk of diabetes and heart disease. The amount of time a person sleeps is one factor that can cause the risk of these health issues. Research is needed to learn specific ways to improve a person's nightly sleep that may lower disease risk. The research we gain may aid future patients.
