Employees of WVU Medicine and the WVU Cancer Institute came together on Monday, May 20 to join organizations across the world in celebrating Clinical Trials Day on May 20. This day recognizes those who conduct clinical trials, raises awareness of clinical trials and clinical research, and is an opportunity to show gratitude for the work they do to improve public health.
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.
