UANews recently featured an article entitled "Freshmen Face Sleep Problems, Education Helps." The article highlights some of the work done by David Salafsky, M.P.H., Director of Health Promotion and Preventive Services (HPPS) for the Campus Health Service and Lee Ann Hamilton, M.Ed., C.H.E.S., Assistant Director for HPPS, concerning the importance of sleep relative to the success of UA students.  David and Lee Ann’s findings are also being published in the Journal of the American College Health Association.
