Collaborating for better sleep health

The American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST) supports the recently updated position put forth by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) in support of the U.S. adoption of year-round standard time, which more fully aligns with the natural circadian rhythm.

Based on a growing body of evidence, the updated 2023 position statement emphasizes that daylight saving time should be replaced by permanent standard time. This position is supported by similar statements adopted by other organizations, including the  American Medical Association.

Read the full 2023 position statement published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, the official publication of the AASM.
