SLEEP 2014 Pizza with a Purpose Welcome Reception
The SLEEP 2014 Pizza with a Purpose Welcome Reception will be held from 6:00pm – 7:30pm on Sunday, June 1, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis. Socialize with your colleagues and enjoy a slice of pizza at this casual reception. This short event also has a tall purpose: to grow funding and gain awareness for the American Sleep Medicine Foundation (ASMF) and the Sleep Research Society Foundation (SRSF). All proceeds from this event will support the ASMF and SRSF, both foundations that aim to promote the advancement of knowledge in the fields of sleep medicine and sleep research. In addition, the APSS will be celebrating the career and legacy of Thomas Roth, PhD, an influential member of the sleep and sleep disorders research field who has served leadership roles in the AASM and SRS.
The AASM invites all members to the AASM PAC Breakfast, to be held on Tuesday, June 3 from 7:00 a.m.-8:00 a.m. During this event, political experts will talk about the important health care issues taking place in Washington D.C. and discuss the importance of having our members participate in the political process. The meeting will also demonstrate how the AASM PAC is an essential part of our advocacy efforts. The cost of attending this event is $50.00. You can buy your ticket during the registration process.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine Political Action Committee (AASM PAC) is a bi-partisan political action committee which assists in electing federal candidates or legislators who are sleep medicine-friendly. This support opens doors for expressing our view points and the need for and value of sleep care services for our individual patients, discuss new delivery models of care, sleep research and the sleep-related public health implications. By contributing to the AASM PAC, members shape the outlook of sleep medicine.
