S 3 Ep 16 - Sleep Is A Vital Sign with Dr. Andrea Matsumura

In this awesome episode of Thrive Bites, I sit down with Dr. Andrea Matsumura who is a sleep specialist and we go over not just the basics, but also why it is vital for us all as a society! You don't want to miss this one!

Dr. Andrea Matsumura was born in San Antonio Texas And attended the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio for medical school. She had a desire to explore and thought she was an east coaster for sure. Little did she know when she did an externship as a fourth-year medical student in Oregon that she would fall in love with the West Coast and all things involving the outdoors. She quickly switched gears and ended up finishing her internal medicine residency in Portland Oregon.

She worked as a hospitalist for a few years and moved into the outpatient care setting as a primary care physician. It was there that her spark for the love of sleep medicine started. While trying to manage chronic medical conditions she quickly realized that sleep is the juggernaut for wellness. 
She went on to complete a fellowship in sleep medicine at Oregon Health and Science University  (OHSU).
Dr. Matsumura describes herself as a holistic sleep medicine physician and enjoys public speaking on all things sleep.  Sleep is a vital sign that has yet to be discovered as the key to how everything else is managed in one’s life.
