Sleepless at UMass? Find out how changing your sleep can change your life. Stop by the Sleep Fair from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Student Union for activities, vendors and freebies, including sleep trackers.

Then, come to “Sleepless @ UMass” from 5 to 7 p.m. in Campus Center 804-805.  Rebecca Spencer, associate professor of psychological and brain sciences and director of the graduate program in neuroscience, explains what sleep does for you, what happens when you don’t get enough, and how to overcome sleep challenges.

Spencer has been continuously funded for sleep research by the National Institutes for Health for more than 10 years. As director of the Sleep, Cognition, and Action Lab at UMass Amherst, she currently holds over $2 million in NIH funding for studies of sleep across the lifespan.

Sleep events are co-sponsored by the Center for Health Promotion and Campus Recreation.
