Posted on 01/23/2020
Neill Public Library LogoNeill Public Library and the Washington State University Graduate and Professional Student Science Policy Initiative are pleased to announce that sleep scientist Dr. Horacio de la Iglesia will present new research on the effect of school start times on student health and performance, followed by a Q&A session.

In 2017, Seattle delayed start times for high-school and middle-school. Dr. de la Iglesia will present his findings on how students’ minds changed, and what later start times could do for parents, teachers, students, and the City of Pullman.

Dr. Horacio de la Iglesia is a professor of Biology at the University of Washington, researching circadian rhythms and its effect on human and animal biology.

This event takes place Thursday, January 30 from 5pm – 6:30pm in the Neill Public Library Hecht Room.
The event is free to the public and requires no registration, but please note seating is limited. Light refreshments will be served.
