The Missouri Sleep Society is committed to the advancement of sleep medicine, but we need your help.
Dear Sleep Medicine Professionals
As the situation with the COVID-19 continues to develop, the entire Board of Directors is ready and standing by to support the sleep medicine professionals. Just recently President Trump has declared a national emergency with many states declaring state of emergency causing sporting events, businesses and schools to close. Many of the hospital systems along with higher education institutions in our region have restricted travel outside their metropolitan areas.
With everything going on, the Board of Directors met on Friday, March 13, 2020 to discuss how we should proceed with the upcoming Missouri State Sleep Conference. Unanimously, we agreed that nothing is more important than your health and safety. We have decided to postpone the Missouri Sleep Conference until this fall. We are actively working to contact our outstanding line of speakers to find out when in September or October that they would be available to speak. We will continue to update The Missouri Sleep Society Website and send out updates with new information regarding the State Sleep Conference as things are changed.
