Thank you for visiting American Sleep Association ® (ASA).
Founded by physicians and scientists in 2002, the American Sleep Association believes that every member of the community, from scientists to corporations to family members, can increase awareness of the importance of sleep and the harmful effects of sleep disorders. Our mission is to help increase this awareness, support organizations in their efforts to do the same, and improve the sleep of millions.
Over the last few years, the topic of sleep has received increased attention from the medical community and the media. Sleep medicine has become its own credentialed field of health & wellness. Books, podcasts, and news shows discuss the importance of a full night’s sleep and how to achieve it. And yet, most individuals with sleep disorders and other sleep problems remain undiagnosed and untreated.
The ASA has spent the last decade working to educate the public on the importance of diagnosing and treating sleep disorders. Private, corporate, and promotional support have enabled the ASA to provide our educational resources to the public for free.
By adding new services and new content, we will remain the comprehensive source of sleep information and continue to make a positive impact by providing the world the resources needed for better sleep.
