LIFETREE CAFÉ TONIGHT: Tonight’s program, titled “Zzzz…Practical Help for Getting a Better Night’s Sleep,” features a filmed interview with Kat Duff, the author of “The Secret Life of Sleep.”

“Insufficient sleep has been called the number one killer in the western world,” said Duff. Sleep experts estimate that nearly 75 percent of adults experience sleep-disorder symptoms at least a few nights per week.

Participants will get practical tips for getting a good night’s rest, explore the cost of insufficient sleep, consider benefits of a good night sleep, and discover the truth about common myths about sleep.
