AASM Daylight Saving Time Policy Webinar

The twice-yearly time switch has been a staple of America for decades. “Fall back” and “spring forward” are common phrases that have brought dread and health issues to millions across the country. Recently there have been efforts at the state and national level to eliminate this. This webinar will explore the science and medicine behind why this antiquated policy should be abolished and replaced with a consistent year-round time.

Panelists:

  • M. Adeel Rishi, MD, AASM Public Safety Committee
  • Thomas Speer, PhD, AASM Advocacy Committee
  • Elizabeth B. Klerman, MD, PhD, Society for Research on Biological Rhythms
  • Jenny Burke, Senior Director, National Safety Council
