UMass Nursing Receives $1.23 Million NIH Center Grant to Study Management of Fatigue and Sleep in Chronic Illness
AMHERST, Mass. – The University of Massachusetts Amherst College of Nursing recently was awarded a five-year, $1.23 million grant from the National Institute of Nursing Research to create a new center where scientists will develop technologies to help people with chronic illness manage fatigue and impaired sleep and help them decide when and how to modify their activities. Studies will test wearable or handheld devices to monitor fatigue or sleep pattern changes.
End-of-the-semester stress? Breathe. Walk. And follow the subtle labyrinth lights. That’s the invitation being posed to the greater community as part of an unusual collaboration between the College of Nursing and the landscape architecture and regional planning department at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
The College is very excited to have Dr. Donna Sabella as our new Seedworks Endowed Professor in Social Justice.
