Medical professionals from across the country will hear from leading sleep experts on sleep science and medicine, and discuss the latest trends and innovations in sleep care during Clayton Sleep Research Foundation’s annual Updates in Sleep Medicine (USM) conference on October 16 – 17 at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis.

“Our annual conference is a great opportunity for medical professionals to learn about advances in sleep medicine in a high-touch environment,” says Joseph Ojile, MD, CEO of the Clayton Sleep Institute and the conference director, in a release. “The USM conference draws expert faculty from the most prestigious and recognized sleep programs and centers in the country and the conference is kept small so attendees have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with the faculty.”

Confirmed faculty for this year’s conference include Max Hirshkowitz, PhD, of Stanford University, Meir Kryger, MD, of Yale University, David Neubauer, MD, of Johns Hopkins, Dr. Gary Richardson, MD, of Circadian Medicine Inc, Stephen Sheldon, DO, of Northwestern University, Jaspal Singh, MD, of Carolinas Medical Center and Phyllis Zee, MD, of Northwestern University.

“Attendees can also earn up to 11 hours of continuing education credits from a variety of accrediting institutions during this conference,” Ojile says. “These credits are applicable to physicians, nurse practitioners, physicians’ assistants, nurses, respiratory therapists, and sleep technologists.”

Online registration is currently open. Registration is $200 for physicians, $150 for non-physicians, and $90 for students and guests. The conference is also accepting exhibitor applications.

Updates in Sleep Medicine is a program of the Clayton Sleep Research Foundation, the educational partner of the Clayton Sleep Institute.
