The Sleep Champion Award celebrates successful community-based sleep health services and education provided by non-profit organizations. AASM members are encouraged to nominate organizations that provide best-in-class care and/or education in the sleep community. The organization selected for the Sleep Champion Award will receive $5,000, in addition to a travel award for a representative to attend a future SLEEP meeting and accept the award in person at a special event.
