    Dr. Landau was as a guest on the Perri Peltz Show on SIRIUS XM Radio, discussing the social and emotional well-being of students:

    “Sometime students can experience difficulty as they pull away from their parents or begin to see them from an adult perspective. They face numerous academic, social and psychological challenges. Self-regulation problems such as sleep disruption, self-medication with comfort food or alcohol and a lack of exercise also can have a cumulative negative lifestyle effect on college students. Some students do well, but others, especially those who are predisposed to depression or anxiety, might find that those self-regulation issues can lead to significant problems.”
