“Sleep is a very relevant topic for college students and too often takes a backseat to busy schedules,” said Jennifer Burton, who coordinates the Wisdom for Wellness series.

“Learning to make sleep a top priority in our lives is important for optimum health, not only physically, but mentally and emotionally as well.”

The Wisdom for Wellness series was created to improve physical and mental health literacy of the student population. It is the goal of the series to increase the students’ knowledge of health topics so they can be active participants in their health now and later in their lives.
