AASM Award Nominations
Each year the AASM Awards Advisory Panel accepts nominations for prestigious AASM Awards, which recognize outstanding contributions to the field of sleep medicine. Award recipients are recognized during the plenary session of the SLEEP annual meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies (APSS). Information about the awards and the nomination, review and selection process are outlined below.

Nomination Review and Award Recipient Selection Process
The AASM Awards Advisory Panel will review the nominees and carefully consider all nominations in relation to the unique attributes of each award. The panel also will consider aspects of diversity — including gender, geography, race, and practice type — so that the award recipients reflect the richness and diversity of the field of sleep medicine. Following this review process, the panel will submit its recommendations of the final candidate(s) for each award to the AASM Board of Directors, which will make the final selections. Award recipients will receive a notification letter by email in late January or early February.
What is the AASM Awards Advisory Panel?
The AASM Awards Advisory Panel was formed in 2021 to assist the Board of Directors in the implementation of a fair, equitable, and transparent process for selecting AASM award recipients. Learn more about the panel on the AASM committees and task forces webpage.
