AMA House of Delegates
The American Medical Association (AMA) House of Delegates is the premier policy-making body of the AMA. Comprising more than 170 medical societies and over 500 voting members, the House of Delegates meets semiannually to discuss the policies and principals concerning the practice of medicine across the country.
Delegates representing the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) at the 2017 AMA House of Delegates meetings are:
- Alejandro Chediak, MD, FAASM—Delegate
- Patrick Strollo Jr., MD, FAASM—Alternate

Our seat in the AMA House of Delegates gives us a platform to represent the interests and needs of sleep specialists. However, this seat is dependent on having a sufficient number of AASM members who join the AMA. Please join the AMA or renew today to help the AASM keep this position of influence and ensure that the voice of sleep specialists is heard on issues of importance to our field. Learn more by reading, “The Case for Membership in the AMA,” a letter to the editor published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine. We thank you for supporting the field of sleep medicine!
