The American Academy of Sleep Medicine is continuing its longstanding commitment to the advancement of sleep science and healthy sleep.  The AASM is investing $2 million to support American Sleep Medicine Foundation initiatives in 2014 as part of a five-year, $10 million commitment.

“The AASM is proud to continue supporting the American Sleep Medicine Foundation in its vital mission to improve sleep health for all,” said AASM President Dr. M. Safwan Badr.

ASMF President Dr. Merrill Wise said that the investment will provide funding to support the foundation’s strategic research and career development grant programs.

“The ASMF is grateful for the ongoing support of the AASM membership and board of directors,” said Wise. “A strong investment in sleep research today will produce sizeable downstream benefits for the entire field of sleep medicine.”
