Sleep Apnea Support Group to meet in Staples

Lakewood Health System’s durable medical equipment store, Medical Marketplace, will host a sleep apnea support group from 2-3:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, on the Lower Level at Lakewood’s Main Campus in Staples.

This is one of a series of meetings that follow a nationally recognized sleep apnea program called A.W.A.K.E., which stands for Alert, Well And Keeping Energetic, and was created on behalf of the American Sleep Apnea Association.

Lakewood Health System is the only healthcare facility in Central Minnesota to offer an A.W.A.K.E. support group. Discussions will include how to optimize sleep apnea therapy, effects of sleep apnea on overall health, coping mechanisms in dealing with sleep apnea and personal accounts and sharing.

RSVPs are appreciated and can be made by calling Medical Marketplace at 218-894-8482.
