Thank you to all of our AAST Members
To all of our AAST members: Thank you!
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we wanted to express our thanks to the 4000+ loyal members we have had the honor of serving and representing since 1978.
We asked several members of our board of directors what they are thankful for:

"I'm thankful for a lot, but in terms of sleep medicine... I'm thankful to be in a position to teach and educate technologists!"
Laura Linley,RST,RPSGT, CRTT, President of the AAST
"I am grateful that I get to work and volunteer in a field that really does improve wellness—my grandmother preached that a good night sleep is essential for a brighter day (hence summer vacations included an early bedtime for all) and now I get to preach the same thing—thank you Grandma Alice!"
