    Event Details

    Do you always feel lethargic despite sleeping a full 8 hours the night before? A study found that 1 in 10 Singaporeans have severe sleep apnea and most are unaware of their condition. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is associated with snoring, choking and daytime somnolence. If left untreated, it could lead to cardiovascular morbidity, diabetes, stroke and dementia. Good quality sleep keeps you healthy and leads to optimum performance at work and school. Join us for this informative webinar and learn how you can take charge of your well-being.

    Dr Paul Mok (Medicine '91) is a Senior Consultant and Medical Director of My ENT Specialist Clinic at Farrer Park Medical Centre. He is also a visiting consultant at Tan Tock Seng Hospital and Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. Dr Mok’s main subspecialty interests are in voice, swallowing and obstructive sleep apnea. He also manages patients with general ENT conditions such as nasal allergies and sinus conditions, hearing loss, giddiness and diseases of the thyroid and salivary glands.
