Stay Home, Stay Well

Since the COVID-19 outbreak first surfaced, UCI Health has been at the forefront in providing the most cutting-edge care possible for patients while actively advancing research, as well as supporting our front line caregivers.

For those of us at home during this unprecedented and challenging time, it’s more important than ever to stay connected and informed to maintain health and well-being.

Part of our mission at the Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute is to transform healthcare through the practice of integrative health by educating the public on well-being practices that focus on obtaining optimal health.

This is why we have created ‘Stay Home, Stay Well’ for you, our community, to have free access to scientific evidence-based integrative health information, articles, tips, videos and live Zoom events as a resource for you and your family’s health during this time.

The Samueli Institute focuses on whole-person care addressing mind, body and spirit. Our Circle of Wellness is a balance of all of these aspects from nutrition, to sleep, our environment and the importance of community.

This Stay Home, Stay Well page will be continually updated with useful, practical, evidence-based information for you to maintain both mental well-being and physical wellness during this time.

We hope you take this time to care for yourselves and your families as nothing is more important than the health and well-being of our loved ones.

Stay Well,

Shaista Malik, M.D., Ph.D.
