Healthy U: Obstructive Sleep Apnea

February 27, 2018

For Immediate Release

Atlantic, IA – Max Starlin, PA-C, will present on obstructive sleep apnea at the next session of Healthy U at noon on Thursday, March 15, at Cass County Health System.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a serious disorder that causes people to stop breathing intermittently as they sleep. It is a very common disorder that affects millions of Americans.
“Obstructive sleep apnea is one of those problems that can really wreak havoc on us,” said Max. “People suffer from headaches, they’re tired all day, and they just don’t feel well, which has a huge impact on their quality of life. Thankfully, there are a number of great treatments to help people who suffer from this condition.”
During Healthy U, Max will discuss the types of sleep apnea, their causes, and the variety of treatment options.
Max joined the Atlantic Medical Center in 2017 to provide family medicine care. He graduated from Des Moines University with a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies degree. Previously, he worked as a respiratory therapist, and he also holds a master’s degree in healthcare administration.
Healthy U is a free educational lunch series at Cass County Health System held monthly in Conference Room 2. The public is invited and welcome to attend, but reservations are required as lunch is provided for all attendees. Call 712-243-7479 to reserve your seat.
