August begins the fifth year of this monthly series and partnership among the New Pittsburgh Courier, Community PARTners (a core service of the University of Pittsburgh’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute—CTSI), the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh and the UPMC Center for Engagement and Inclusion. These pages provide you with valuable research information on health topics that may affect you, your family or friends and connect you to research opportunities and local health resources. All articles can be accessed online at the New Pittsburgh Courier website.
This month, the “Take Charge of Your Health Today” page focuses on the importance of sleep and how it affects our overall health. Jennifer R. Jones, MPH, community engagement coordinator at Pitt and Esther L. Bush, president and CEO of the Urban League, discussed this important topic.
