Mission Statement

The objective of the Pennsylvania Sleep Society is to promote excellence in the areas of sleep research, sleep education and clinical practice.

By promoting the highest standards in these areas, the Society will also serve to represent the Pennsylvania sleep community in the advocacy of state and federal public policy issues potentially impacting the profession.

Furthermore, the Society will serve as a network for sleep professionals by encouraging communication between all practitioners, researchers and educators involved in the science and clinical practice of sleep medicine, in addition to maintaining valuable relationships with other allied health professionals and organizations.
