Chairman’s Message

This year, SDSM will organize the 7th Federation of Southeast Asian Sleep Medicine Congress (7th FSSM) in Kuala Lumpur. The theme for this year’s congress is Sleep and Wellbeing.

Sleep is an important aspect of life and one of the key components of our wellbeing. Thus, we decided to use this opportunity to shore up the relationship. The scientific committee is preparing a wide variety of interesting topics and subjects for this year’s congress. As sleep is a condition that matters to a multidisciplinary fraternity, the topics will be multidisciplinary in nature. The fraternity involved includes respiratory medicine of adults and pediatrics, otorhinolaryngology, neurology, psychiatry, and dental. The topics include discussing sleep and daily life activity which touch the accident risk.

The 3 pre-congress workshops will guide participants about the practical aspects of sleep study, myofunctional therapy, and sleep disorder and addiction. There will be a forum discussing issues pertaining to sleep and substances. Thus, we would like to welcome all our colleagues to participate in this year’s congress. Have a wonderful time.

Thank you!

Assoc. Prof. Dato’ Dr. Ahmad Fadzil Abdullah
Scientific Chair
