Biography

Henry Yaggi, MD, MPH, is director of the Sleep Medicine Program and a specialist in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine. 

Dr. Yaggi’s patient care and research focuses on the intersection between sleep medicine and other specialties, including cardiovascular health, metabolic health, and cognitive function. 

He often treats patients with sleep apnea, a sleeping disorder in which breathing stops and starts frequently during the night. His research explores many aspects of sleep apnea, including why it raises risk for cardiovascular and metabolic health issues and how at-home diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea impacts cardiovascular risk. 

Dr. Yaggi’s goal is to emphasize to his patients how important sleep is for their overall health and well-being and to make treatment for sleep disorders more accessible. Some of his research looks at how cognitive behavioral therapy can help patients who have insomnia and heart failure.  

He is also a principal investigator at the National VA Clinical Epidemiology Research Center.
