On Jan. 1 the AASM launched the SleepEducation Blog, an online public education resource at www.sleepeducation.blogspot.com. Blogs – short for "Web logs" – have quickly become one of the most effective tools for providing timely information and commentary to a broad audience. As the leading authority on sleep-related issues, the AASM will use the blog to provide the public with daily updates on relevant news and new research. Visitors to the blog can subscribe to the posts and add their comments to the daily discussion.

Visit the blog today, add a link to it on your Web site, and encourage your patients to make the SleepEducation Blog and the companion Web site at www.sleepeducation.com their primary sources of accurate information about sleep and sleep disorders.
