Join Our Year-End Campaign
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.
The AASM Foundation announces a special year-end campaign to raise $50,000 for the
expansion of our career development programs for sleep and circadian researchers.
Raising $50,000 in new funding will help support our career development programs, which are expanding the pipeline of sleep scientists.
Building Successful Careers
Recent awardees reported the following notable impacts on their career development:
- Protected time from clinical work
- Opportunities to network with other researchers
- Invitations to give research lectures at multiple national meetings and peer institutions
- Recognition by other organizations and/or receipt of merit-based awards
- Securing a permanent position at their institution
Thanks to donors like you, we can expand our clinical research programs to ensure that specialists in sleep medicine can provide high quality, evidence-based care for patients.
Thank you for your support,
James A. Rowley, MD
