It never gets dark in a hospital room, even in the middle of the night. The constant illumination can do more than just annoy patients. According to a study by Randy Nelson and Courtney DeVries—researchers in the WVU School of Medicine—it may even depress them. Nelson’s and DeVries’ work may suggest new hospital lighting schemes that bolster patients’ moods and promote healing.
WVU Professor Emeritus Alan M. Ducatman is among the presenters for an upcoming Public Health Grand Rounds session, "PFAS and Protecting Your Health,” hosted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
