Montana Sleep Society

Welcome to the Montana Sleep Society website!

Thank You for stopping by to visit.


The Montana Sleep Society is an organization devoted to providing educational opportunities for sleep technologists, physicians, dentists, respiratory therapists and other health care professionals with an interest in sleep medicine. Our goal is to keep an eye on legislation that may impact the field of sleep medicine and potentially affect our ability to practice as sleep technologists in the state of Montana. We have created a scholarship fund in memory of Vicki Bellew to provide educational funding.
