Sleep Apnea Awareness Day 2007 - wrap up

The 3rd annual Sleep Apnea Awareness Day lecture was held... here is the link to the page on the ASAA web site with the link to the lecture -

The speakers at the event were excellent. And while the attendance at the event was less than it might have been, we do have it video recorded and available to anyone with access to the Internet.

I must say though, it is a lot of work putting this together and the spent on this was time taken away from other equally important activities. But this was important and now it is done.

There was some serendipity this year that made SAAD 2007 special. I had the pleasure of sharing parts of it with members of the ASAA Board. I got to know Terry Young, noted researcher in the field of sleep apnea.

We were able to participate with the National Sleep Foundation in visits to Capital Hill in support of additional funding for CDC for sleep and sleep disorder surveillance... which will do more with in our legislatative action center.

On top of everything that occurred during Sleep Awareness Day - our newest Board member Nancy Rothstein did a read-a-loud at a local elementary school. It was a treat.

Big things are on the horizon... I will be back to report on these doings, soon.
