American Sleep Apnea Association Issues Sleep Advocacy Action Alert for Florida


Federal Funding for Sleep and Sleep Disorders Activities at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Washington, DC, April 29, 2007 --(PR.com)-- The American Sleep Apnea Association (ASAA), the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) and member organizations of the National Sleep Awareness Roundtable (NSART) are seeking funding for sleep activities at the CDC this year.

This money will allow the CDC to start data collection and surveillance activities, create education and awareness materials for the public and health care professionals, and establish fellowship opportunities for promising researchers at universities and colleges.

Florida Senator Bill Nelson has been identified as a key member who could support this initiative. ASAA has been communicating with Senator Nelson's office for the last few months it is believed that support and leadership on his behalf can behalf can be gained if the local sleep community takes part in contacting him for assistance in the advocacy program.

Those who wish to contact Senator Nelson are encouraged to immediately do so by calling, emailing or faxing their requests to cement his support.
