International students’ abnormal sleep schedules may have short and long-term health consequences, a UCLA neurologist said. Students living far from Pacific Standard Time have had to stay up at odd hours of the day to take classes remotely. Alon Avidan, the director of the UCLA Sleep Disorders Center and a neurology professor, said people put themselves at risk for a number of health issues if they are not awake during the day. They may face complications with hormone control, blood sugar control and immune system impairment, Avidan added.
