    What is Direct Primary Care with Dr. Ati Hakimi

    What is Direct Primary Care with Dr. Ati Hakimi

    Dr. Ati Hakimi MD graduated from Northwestern University residency in Family Medicine and did an extra year of training in Geriatric Medicine at Rush University Medical Center. She has practiced medicine for over 20 years.
    She moved to Las Vegas in 2016 and immediately knew she was home. She was chosen for Leadership Las Vegas Class of 2018 and that is where she found her tribe to motivate her to make a difference in the city. She was very disheartened to know that Las Vegas was number 47 in the nation in healthcare. So, with the support of her life long leadership friends and her family, she started Vegas Direct Primary Care.

    You & Your Brain: The Truth About Sleep

    You & Your Brain: The Truth About Sleep

    As part of our You and Your Brain webinar series, a collaboration between HealthyWomen, Prevention & Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement at Cleveland Clinic, we’re going to explore the “Truth About Sleep.”
    We all know quality sleep is essential for overall health, affecting both our physical and mental functioning. To put it simply, without enough sleep, the brain cannot function properly, with sleep deficiency linked to many chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease, dementia and Alzheimer’s.
    Unfortunately, most adults — especially women from midlife on — experience difficulty sleeping at some point in their lives, and for many, sleep quality can get worse with age.
    Learn from leading experts about the benefits of good sleep hygiene, the practices that make for a good night’s sleep, and practical advice and solutions you can use right now to master better sleep hygiene.
