I have been a member of the AASM since I first entered the field as a sleep fellow who was embarking on a new professional journey. Over the years, I have grown to appreciate the many ways in which the AASM has had a positive impact on my career.
The AASM defines, announces, educates and organizes sleep medicine. It justifies and represents, it investigates and defends, and in many ways it creates our field. The AASM helps each of us reach our highest potential when it comes to serving our patients.
I’ve now been a sleep physician for 24 years. I can’t imagine what it would have been like without the AASM.
I’ve already renewed my membership for 2017, and I encourage you to join me by renewing your AASM membership today. Together we will advance the AASM mission of achieving optimal health through better sleep.
