Spring ahead! The effects of time change on health

OTTAWA, March 9, 2017 /CNW/ - On Sunday, March 12, Daylight Savings Time begins and we'll set our clocks ahead one hour.  But what happens to our internal clocks? Are some people more sensitive to time changes? How does it affect the way we sleep? Is our mood really affected by time change?

Dr. Colleen Carney, CIHR-funded researcher, is available to answer these questions and share her expertise on mood and beliefs about sleep.
