UCI researchers dive deep in search of health-sleep links
Rejuvenating the Spirit
In this spring edition of UCI Magazine, we focus on how the university’s work addresses challenging societal issues – from sleep to grief to domestic violence – and in doing so, aids individuals in life-changing ways. “Wake-Up Call” highlights the efforts of UCI researchers who are delving into the realm of sleep to improve people’s health broadly and equitably, while “Virtual Solace” details the ingenuity of a small UCI computer sciences team that partnered with a national nonprofit to create an online portal to help youths grieve and heal after the loss of a loved one. In “Striving Together to End Family Violence,” clinical law professor Jane Stoever answers questions about a new UCI initiative that aims to create a world where people of all ages can feel safe in their families and relationships. Finally, in “Community Canvas,” we feature UCI’s arts school under the leadership of a new dean – and her vision to build bridges through the arts. We also profile several students who overcame adversity – from incarceration to disability – and are now infusing the arts into various communities, “rejuvenating the spirit” of myriad others. After all, at an institution of higher learning like UCI, hope springs eternal.
