  • Educate the public on healthy sleep practices that improve quality of life and well-being and prevent the development or worsening of sleep disorders
  • Educate the medical profession on the early detection and treatment of sleep disorders
  • Train interested professionals in the field of sleep disorders medicine
  • Improve the understanding of medical students, medical residents, and fellows on the importance of sleep and sleep disorders in health and disease
  • Conduct scientific research to gain further knowledge in the areas of sleep disorders medicine
  • Promote both clinical and basic research in an integrated manner to improve our understanding of the mechanisms of sleep and its disorders that eventually will lead to new treatments
