Spring Forward but Stay Rested Webinar 


It's been a week since we all sprang forward to Daylight Savings Time and many
are still struggling to regain that 60 minutes of sleep. TRICARE and Military
OneSource are co-hosting a webinar on Monday, March 23, 2015 at 1:00pm EST to
help you fight popular sleep myths and get some rest.  

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited due to system
capacity. Sign up at
https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5370744131061957890. Participants must
avoid sharing personal health information when asking a question.

There are many things that we can do to make sure that we get enough sleep so
that when Daylight Savings Time hits twice a year, there is minimum impact to
our lives. This webinar will discuss these helpful tips, as well as sleep myths
and the facts that dismiss them.

The featured speaker for this event is Dr. Jordanna Hostler. Dr. Hostler is a
Pulmonary/Critical Care and Sleep Medicine specialist at the Sleep Disorders
Center at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center at Bethesda. She is
the acting Chief of Sleep Medicine and is an active faculty member of the Sleep
Medicine fellowship program. She is also an associate professor of medicine at
the Uniformed Services University School of Medicine.

This webinar will discuss the importance of sleep, sleep issues and the
consequences of functioning without adequate sleep. You may submit your
questions to Jordanna Hostler before the webinar by sending an email to

TRICARE to Support Operation Live Well in #UltimateFamily Twitter Chat 


More than 23 million children and teenagers in the United States are obese or
overweight. This puts nearly one third of America's children at early risk for
Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and even stroke. Join
Operation Live Well on the #UltimateFamily Twitter event this Thursday, March
19, 2015 as we join the conversation to combat this epidemic. 

Be sure to use the #UltimateFamily hashtag as you talk to experts from the
American Heart Association, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the
"Let's Move!" Initiative, Johns Hopkins Medicine, and many more. 

From noon EST to 3:00pm, we will answer your questions and discuss general
topics on supporting healthy eating for children and families, promoting
exercise habits for the entire family and specific challenges for minority
groups where childhood obesity numbers are highest. 

TRICARE encourages healthy living and houses tools and resources to help
families make healthy choices on the Live Well <http://www.tricare.mil/livewell>
