AAST celebrated Sleep Technologist Appreciation Week October 30 – November 5, 2016. This week provides an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments our field has made in sleep disorders centers, laboratories, education facilities, and in the AAST.
Many workplaces and groups around the country celebrated Sleep Technologist Appreciation Week (STAW) by organizing appreciation dinners, distributing promotional items available through the AAST, and holding staff contests.
The AAST kicked off STAW 2016 distributing the official STAW 2016 Crossword Puzzle and posting Flash Facts. Individuals were encouraged to successfully complete and submit these activities to the National Office for the chance to win an AAST gift. This year there were three winners randomly selected from the entries. We are excited to announce our three STAW 2016 winners: Amber Brown, Celine Kremeniuk, and Brian Stansell. Congratulations to each of the winners.
Please stay tuned for Sleep Technologist Appreciation Week 2017 and new chances to participate and win AAST gifts.
The AAST appreciates the numerous vital contributions sleep technologists play in the lives of patients each day.
