The AASM Foundation invests in people, research, and communities to improve the sleep health of all people. Our core values include creating inclusive and collaborative opportunities, such as the Sleep Team Travel Grant.

The Sleep Team Travel Grant supports first-time attendance at the SLEEP meeting for non-physician members of the sleep team, such as sleep technologists and advanced practice providers. As part of our dedication to fostering opportunities to engage with others within the sleep community, grant recipients will also be able to participate in a special networking activity at SLEEP 2024.

This AASM Foundation Team Travel Grant is funded in part by a generous individual.
