Increasing public awareness about the importance of sleep health and the dangers of sleep disorders.
The primary mission of the American Sleep Association is to improve public health by increasing awareness about the importance of sleep and the dangers of sleep disorders. A secondary mission is to support other efforts and organizations that share our primary objective or help to improve public sleep health in other beneficial ways.
ASA was founded in 2002 by sleep professionals as a member-driven public awareness effort. ASA believes that every member of the community (physician, scientist, allied health care, technologist, patient, family member, and corporate partner) can make a positive impact in this effort.
