As you finalize your plans to attend SLEEP 2014, we encourage you to register for the Pizza with a Purpose Welcome Reception, which will include special recognition of Dr. Thomas Roth for his many contributions to the development of the AASM, SRS and APSS.
Dr. Roth was the second president of the AASM, a two-time president of the SRS, the first chair of the APSS Program Committee, and the second editor of SLEEP. As a leader, researcher, clinician, mentor and friend, he has had a lasting impact on both of our professional societies and on the careers of many in the sleep field. His recent retirement gives us the perfect opportunity to show our appreciation for him at SLEEP 2014.
Please help us celebrate the career and legacy of Dr. Roth by attending the Pizza with a Purpose Welcome Reception, which will take place Sunday, June 1, at 6 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis. You can pre-register for the event by completing and faxing this form by May 19 to 630-737-9789. Questions about the reception can be directed to the APSS Meeting Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The annual welcome reception provides a relaxed venue for attendees to reconnect with friends and network with colleagues. All proceeds from the event support the grant programs of the American Sleep Medicine Foundation and the Sleep Research Society Foundation.
We hope to see you at the Pizza with a Purpose Welcome Reception at SLEEP 2014.
