During Sleep Week 2013, Dr. Anuj Chandra is holding an open house to celebrate his new Ringgold / East Ridge Sleep Center, located at 2052 Highway 41 in Ringgold.
The new branch of the Advanced Center for Sleep Disorders is a comprehensive sleep diagnostic center with six beds.
The open house will be March 8, from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. Dr. Chandra and his staff will provide free screening for sleep disorders and informational presentations on healthy sleep.
National Sleep Week is held this year from March 3-10. At the beginning of the week, the National Sleep Foundation will release results of the annual Sleep In America poll on March 4. This year's poll explores the relationship between sleep and exercise. Dr. Anuj Chandra, medical director of the Advanced Center for Sleep Disorders, will be available for interpretation of the results and local commentary.
"The relationship between sleep and exercise is very strong," said Dr. Chandra. "If you exercise every day you sleep better, as long as your exercise is not too close to bed time. Getting enough exercise helps you lose weight, and if you lose weight you will sleep better."
