We have a national crisis of poor sleep and undiagnosed or untreated sleep disorders, creating a considerable need to address the gaps in knowledge that impact patient care. In 2018 the National Institutes of Health projected that funding for sleep research will decrease by 22%. These challenges are significant. We can’t solve them alone, but we can work together to address them.
Contributions help support our career development programs, which are expanding the pipeline of sleep scientists. These programs provide seed-funding for research, training workshops, and mentoring for early-career investigators. Donations help us increase our track record of success by providing more funding to more individuals who are invested in the future of sleep research.
Join our annual campaign for sleep health with a contribution. Each person that donates $250 or more will receive a special thank you gift with your choice of the following options:
- NEW for 2020 – A comfortable royal blue picnic blanket that is water resistant, padded and has a pocket. The carrying strap makes it perfect for a picnic or the beach, and it folds neatly into itself with a zipper closure. The blanket is 50″ x 60″ unfolded and 16″ x 12″ when folded.
- A trendy 20oz tumbler that features the AASM Foundation’s logo. Now available with two color options, white or blue. Durable, double-wall stainless steel vacuum construction with copper insulation, which allows your beverage to stay cold for 24 hours and at least 8 hours for hot beverages. The construction also prevents condensation on the outside of the tumbler. Special features include a push-on two-piece lid with Tritan™ swivel closure. The lid also features a wide opening for easy filling and pouring.
- A sophisticated laptop protective sleeve that showcases the AASM Foundation’s branding. The interior of the 13” case is lined with a layer of protective foam which is covered by our luxurious plush microfiber to guard electronics against harm and provide a soft pillow like enclosure. Since SLEEP attendees are always on the move, the case is designed to easily slide into a backpack or purse.
Donations directly support our multi-year plan to address the critical shortage of clinicians and researchers entering the field of sleep medicine by developing solutions for the problems caused by sleep and circadian disorders.
