It is with great sorrow that the American Academy of Sleep Medicine informs its members of the untimely passing of long-time and esteemed member Wayne Hening, MD, PhD.

A noted expert in restless legs syndrome, Dr. Hening was an Assistant Clinical Professor of Neurology at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and also served on the Medical Advisory Board for the Restless Leg Syndrome Foundation.

Dr. Hening’s legacy will sustain through his many contributions to the sleep medicine field.
