We have put together a really stellar program for the 2011 ASET annual conference in Atlanta! You can view the entire schedule of events at our website. We will be applying to AAST for CECs for the PSG course that we are holding on Saturday, July 30th, so sleep technologists seeking recertification, please take note! Our General Session includes exciting presentations! We have a Symposium on “out-of-the-box” opportunities for technologists, and our Keynote Speaker is a member of an exclusive research team of the military, who invent devices for soldiers to use that are very “Sci_Fi”!
In Atlanta we also have our first ever “Synapse Bowl” on July 30th, and this will be a fun-filled way to learn! This is a quiz bowl, with a Jeopardy game format. We need teams of four to compete! There will be very worthwhile prizes for the winning team! We have a sign-up sheet for anyone who wishes to compete, on our website.
It is with great sadness that I must share with you, the passing of a great member of ASET, Gary March. He was a wonderful colleague, a talented teacher, and brought humor to ASET meetings, always willing to do a skit! Gary worked at Albany Medical Center for many years, and started his own END business. He was only 56, and was ill for a very short time. His loss is tragic, and I will miss him as a personal friend, and an ASET supporter!
