President's Blog - MAY 2019

Dear SBSM Members,

Graduation season is here and this is a time to celebrate with those who have completed a milestone in their education. As in the past, the SBSM will also recognize and celebrate those who have completed training programs in BSM this year at our annual Bootzin Awards reception held during the SLEEP meeting. The SBSM will celebrate their achievement and recognize them as well as their program directors at the reception. These new SBSM practitioners represent the future of the field and our society. We are excited to celebrate with them and welcome them to the field. Additionally, winners of the Art Spielman Early Career Distinguished Achievement Award and the Peter Hauri Career Distinguished Achievement Award will be announced and their awards presented at the reception. Please join us in celebrating the accomplishments of these individuals.

We will also celebrate a milestone for the SBSM this year with the First Annual BSM Scientific Program in Birmingham, AL at the Renaissance Marriott Resort and Spa. The program will include renown national and international speakers, dynamic workshops and symposia, including state of the art presentations on a range of topics. We encourage everyone to attend the conference and be part of this historic event for our society.

President, SBSM
