Mark your calendars as come May 15th the American Sleep Apnea Association (ASAA) will once again be hosting the annual AWAKEtogether Summit. While we usually welcome patients, caregivers and professionals from all over the country to participate in person, this year due to the restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic, the event will be presented online only.
As in previous year’s AWAKE Sleep Apnea Initiative and Summits, we will pursue our in-depth exploration of sleep apnea patient experiences. Once again, engaged patient panelists will share their experiences. Just this year you can enjoy the event and participate as you wish from the comfort of your home.
This webcast event is FREE and available live, and interactive for sleep apnea patients and caregivers who have pre-registered for it. You can expect the same lively panel presentations, insightful Q&A sessions, and community involvement you are accustomed to at our summits.
During the Summit webcast, patients will be, as always, at the center of the conversation and will discuss their most pressing topics with experts. This year the focus will be on how various sleep apnea issues are impacted by COVID-19 and will include the following topics:
• COVID19, Sleep Breathing Disorders and Co-Occurring Conditions
• Front Line and Essential Workers: Manage Their sleep During COVID19 Crisis
• Sleep/Mental Health Issues as a Result of Isolation/Financial Worries
• The Future of Sleep Starts from the Womb
• Online participation including live chats, Q&A
As you can tell, there is much to see and learn during this year’s event and we can’t wait to share it all with you.
