Dear Members and Colleagues:

As the 2024 President of the Michigan Academy of Sleep Medicine (MASM), it is with immense pleasure that I address you today at this pivotal juncture in our esteemed organization’s journey. Since its inception Michigan Academy of Sleep Medicine (MASM) has steadfastly served as a vital forum for exchanging ideas and enhancing awareness about sleep disorders.

Our association takes pride in the involvement of our membership at large in the field of Sleep Medicine across the state of Michigan. Their expertise and unwavering dedication have been the cornerstone of our progress and influence in this indispensable medical specialty.

I would like to express my deepest appreciation to our immediate past president, Dr. Maria P. Tovar Torres, and past presidents before her for their exceptional leadership and vision. Their efforts have been pivotal in propelling MASM to remarkable heights and establishing a solid groundwork for our future endeavors.

I sincerely hope as MASM new president my profound dedication to Sleep Medicine will steer MASM towards new horizons of success and achievement. In addition, I am delighted to welcome the new executive committee and their collective expertise and leadership will be vital to our organization’s continued growth and making a significant impact in the sleep society.

As we venture ahead, let us renew our dedication to advancing the field of Sleep Medicine and strive to nurture a community that champions research, education, and collaborative initiatives in this vital healthcare sector.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce a new “Community Service Award” which will be open for nominations to our membership at large this year. Call for nominations will be circulated separately. I would encourage our members to strongly consider actively engaging in several committees that are working tirelessly on your behalf and always looking for new members. This is a great opportunity to get leadership experience under your belt especially for young faculty members.


Vishal Saini, M.D.

President – Michigan Academy of Sleep Medicine
