S3 Ep5: Transforming Health and Wellness Through Better Sleep —featuring Heidi Anderson and Dr. Heidi Riney

Pause for a second and honestly think about your sleeping hygiene. Do you have to think twice before you answer?

In this episode, Heidi Riney, board-certified in sleep medicine and neurology Chief Medical Officer, and Heidi Anderson, president, and Chief Growth Officer at Nox Health, talk about how they are revolutionizing health by taking care of patients’ sleep.

Nox Health seeks to seamlessly give access to everyone who needs good sleep care across the country in an efficient, effective, and affordable way. Heidi and Heidi explain the diagnostics and assessment a patient can undergo in Nox’s sleep program and emphasize the importance of education and awareness around sleep healthcare.

Tune in and learn why taking care of your sleep is key to having better health!
