Please help support our advocacy efforts by contributing to the AASM Political Action Committee (AASM PAC) booth at SLEEP 2012. Over the last few months the AASM has been meeting with federal lawmakers and agencies to increase the AASM’s presence in Washington, D.C. These regular meetings serve to educate federal legislators on sleep medicine and the Academy’s position on issues such as new care delivery models for sleep, reimbursement for sleep medicine physicians and funding for research.
The AASM PAC has been a vital tool for raising awareness of sleep medicine and sleep disorders at a governmental level, for positioning the AASM on issues relevant to the practice of sleep medicine including new delivery models for sleep and reimbursement for sleep medicine physicians and for securing future government funding opportunities for sleep research.
