2020 Annual Meeting

Society of Anesthesia and Sleep Medicine

10th Annual Meeting | October 1-2, 2020
Virtual Meeting

AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ Offered



Dear Colleagues,


While these past few months have held much uncertainty during the COVID-19 pandemic, I hope this message finds you, your colleagues and your families safe and healthy.


Along with many other societies, the Society of Anesthesia and Sleep Medicine (SASM) Board of Directors has been diligently working behind the scenes to develop a plan to best hold our Annual Meeting this October while understanding the safety and well-being of our members is of the utmost importance.


SASM remains committed to advancing the standards of care for clinical problems shared by anesthesiology and sleep medicine and therefore is excited to announce plans for a virtual Annual Meeting. While we will miss seeing you all in person, going virtual will offer us the ability to hold an exciting meeting, while also offering high quality content and the ability to obtain your continuing medical education credit. As a result of going virtual, we are working on a meeting format that will allow for high impact education in a more abbreviated fashion in order to prevent screen fatigue.


Thank you to our members who participated in our virtual Annual Meeting survey. While we work on incorporating your feedback into the meeting format, timing and content for planning of the virtual meeting, please continue to save the original Annual Meeting dates of October 1-2, 2020. More details will be released via email and on our website in the coming weeks.


If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. Thank you for your understanding. I’m looking forward to our first ever virtual meeting.



Dennis H. Auckley, M.D.
President, Society of Anesthesia and Sleep Medicine
