Alon Y. Avidan, M.D., M.P.H. visited the Department as the second speaker in the Drs. Earl and Louise Zazove Lectureship in Family Medicine on July 13th.
Dr. Avidan is a professor of neurology at the University of California, Los Angeles and director of both the UCLA Sleep Disorders Center and the UCLA Neurology Clinic. His lecture, entitled, “Sleep Disturbances in Older Age: What Lies Beneath?” was informative, dynamic and well-received by the Department faculty, residents, students and outside guests.
“It was a fabulous lecture with many new insights into sleep problems of the elderly. I was especially pleased to see the size of the crowd, particularly the large number of medical students and residents, who were brought up to date on this important new medical knowledge,” said Dr. Earl Zazove.
During his time in Ann Arbor, Dr. Avidan also met with Family Medicine’s residents and faculty with U-M’s Sleep Disorders Center.
