Zoom Presentation: Sleep Your Way to Better Health

Tuesday, May 12, 2020 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm

The Camden Public Library welcomes local health and wellness coach Hester Kohl and family physician Dr. Deb Peabody, for an online discussion addressing the benefits deep sleep delivers to the immune system, metabolism, and brain health. The program will be conducted via the Zoom platform. Email jpierce@librarycamden.org to request a link to attend.

Kohl and Peabody will explore reasons that people feel fatigued. They will expose factors that contribute to people not being able to achieve the quantity and quality of sleep their bodies need. “After this presentation, participants will be able to identify common ‘sleep stealers’ and apply strategies for tackling them,” Kohl explains. “Participants will leave the program empowered with a list of daily habits that encourage deep and restful sleep, which they can start using right away!”

Hester Kohl is a National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach who emphasizes supportiveness and strives to make wellness an enjoyable endeavor. Through her experience coaching with Waldo County General Hospital and Pen Bay Medical Center for eight years, then managing a statewide health coaching program for Maine DOT in Augusta, Kohl learned that joy is the key to long-term wellness. Kohl says that she loves living in Camden and finds happiness while walking to Curtis Island Overlook and biking the Beauchamp Point loop.

Dr. Deb Peabody is a Maine native and practicing family physician for over fourteen years. She began her career in the mainstream healthcare system but now focuses her care on the Functional Medicine Model “to help patients achieve optimal health in all seasons of their lives.” Dr. Peabody is part of the 4 Seasons Wellness Medical Practice in Camden.
