The purpose of the 28th annual North East Sleep Society (NESS) meeting is to bring together interested parties in sleep medicine. This includes members of AASM-affiliated state sleep societies in ten northeastern states and other sleep professionals to foster regional networking and educate sleep professionals in the latest innovations in the study of sleep disorders. Speakers include thought leaders in sleep medicine discussing developments in conditions impacting restful sleep in adults, adolescents, and pediatrics to include insomnia, shift work, RLS, circadian rhythm, OSA and how comorbidities such as diabetes, obesity, pregnancy, and cardiovascular disease impact treatment strategies. This years meeting has several special interest lectures focusing on the changing field of sleep medicine. Attendees will gain understanding of where sleep medicine began and what to expect into the future.
