CONNECT 2022 - Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Cognitive Dysfunction | Douglas Skarada, MD, & Nahmjee Lee-Skarada, DMD




Cost: Non-members: $65 | Member: $35 | Student: $15
Drs. Douglas Skarada and Nahmjee Lee Skarada will take you along a journey exploring the tremendous impact sleep disorders have on the well-being of your patients' cognitive functions. The percentage of un-diagnosed sleep disorders means that we all have patients coming through our clinics each day going “under-treated”. You will gain NEXT-LEVEL CARE TOOLS enabling you to provide world-class care to your patient populations. Our goals:
1. Enable you to help patients who are “stuck” and no longer improving in your treatment plans.
2. Help patients who may have improved, but not completely. You will enable them to experience more complete results.
3. Minimize the HIDDEN LIABILITY RISK baked into the modern delivery of sleep care in our practices. As it turns out, what you don’t know CAN hurt you, badly.
4. Have your patients thank you for your ability to solve mysterious problems.
5. Learn how to CONNECT BETTER to the greater holistic sleep community. Doing so will elevate your clinic’s status as the place to go to get things done.
Accomplishing these goals does not have to be boring. Dr. Skarada leans in to his “dad humor” to help you laugh your way through the talk. Join him for the journey to a deeper understanding of sleep apnea and its impact on cognitive impairment.
