There are many ways for members to become involved with the
AAHS. Whether volunteering for a committee, participating in events and advocacy, or interacting with other members, the AAHS encourages every member to participate in the ongoing activities of the AAHS.
Thank you to all AAHS members who have volunteered for a member committee. The AAHS is currently reviewing volunteer information to form these committees. As the AAHS has a diverse membership, it is important for all members, including patients with sleep disorders, sleep providers, and others interested in healthy sleep, to participate on AAHS committees. These committees will help to steer the course of the AAHS over the next year and beyond, and this is an opportunity for members to use their experience, knowledge and passion to help improve the lives of patients with sleep disorders and spread the importance of healthy sleep. Although the deadline to participate on a committee has passed, if you are still interested in volunteering with the AAHS, please contact the AAHS at email@example.com.
Membership Committee: The membership committee provides recommendations regarding membership benefits and activities to the Board of Directors. Committee goals include:
APSS SLEEP 2018 VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY
APSS SLEEP 2018 is a joint meeting between the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society and is the premier meeting for sleep providers, including physicians, researchers, technologists and other sleep providers. It is being held in Baltimore, Maryland June 2-6, 2018.
The AAHS will be hosting a Learning Lounge session during APSS SLEEP 2018. Learning Lounge sessions are one-hour sessions that allow for discussion of new services that can benefit providers and their patients. The AAHS’s Learning Lounge will be held Wednesday (June 6) afternoon. The session will focus on supporting patients with sleep disorders through services and engagement including current support services, common problems and needs in relation to supporting patients, and how to increase engagement. The AAHS is looking for both patient and provider members who either live in the Baltimore area or will already be attending SLEEP 2018 that would be available to serve on a 3-person panel to discuss this topic. This will be a 30-minute moderated panel followed by a question and answer session. If you are interested in serving on this panel, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by May 19, 2018.
Contact email@example.com to share your story. Everyone in the sleep community benefits from the sharing of information, resources and personal stories regarding your experience living with a sleep disorder, working with patients with sleep disorders or fighting for healthy sleep causes. The AAHS spotlights a new member issue every month and is always looking for members to contribute their stories!
