The Sleep Education Blog, which the AASM launched as a public awareness resource in 2009, was a nominee for Best New Medical Weblog as part of the 2009 Medical Weblog Awards, sponsored by Epocrates and conducted by medGadget.

As the leading authority on sleep-related issues, the AASM uses the blog to provide the public with daily updates on relevant news and new research. Visitors can subscribe to the posts and add their comments to the daily discussion. To date the blog has received visits from 152 countries and territories around the world.

AASM members are encouraged to visit the blog today, add a link to it on your Web site, and encourage your patients to make the Sleep Education Blog and the companion Web site at their primary sources of accurate information about sleep and sleep disorders.
