Relationships between short sleep duration, obesity and chronic disease

Join us for a seminar with Dr Carol M. Baldwin from Arizona State University as she reveals how the quality of our sleep can have a profound effect on our health.


Sleep that knits up the raveled sleave of care,
The death of each day’s life, sore labor’s bath,
Balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course,
Chief nourisher in life’s feast.
William Shakespeare, Macbeth Act II, Scene II


Dr Carol Baldwin’s research focuses on studying the associations between sleep disorders, health-related quality of life (HR-QOL), and chronic non-communicable diseases associated with lifestyle. Much of her work has focused on the study of ethnically diverse populations.

About the speaker: Dr Carol M. Baldwin

Dr Carol M. Baldwin is Professor Emeritus, Southwest Borderlands Scholar and Deputy Director of the WHO Collaborating Centre to Advance the Policy on Research for Health, at The College of Nursing & Health Innovation, Arizona State University. Dr Baldwin’s interest in sleep began when she was a co-investigator on the 10-year-long NIH National Heart Lung Blood Institute Sleep Heart Health Study (SHHS) and principal investigator on the NIH-funded Spanish translation and validation of the sleep habits questionnaire from the SHHS.

Along with colleagues Dr Baldwin has translated, validated and tested sleep measures in several languages. She has developed training modules in sleep disorders and sleep health promotion which are now being used by health providers in the United States and Mexico, and for which her team was awarded the prestigious American Academy of Nursing Raise the Voice EdgeRunner designation. The outcomes from these studies have provided pioneering information on sleep disorders and concomitant morbidity and mortality, including associations between short sleep and type 2 diabetes.
