The annual Aldrich Lecture honors Michael S. Aldrich, M.D.  (1949-2000).  In 1985, Dr. Aldrich founded the first University of Michigan Sleep Disorders Center, in the Department of Neurology. He made seminal contributions to the development of a new medical field that has grown to have substantial public health impact. Widely known for his work on narcolepsy, Dr. Aldrich was a consummate clinician, educator, and researcher. The Aldrich Lecture celebrates his vision and achievement, which laid the foundations for one of the most highly respected sleep medicine programs nationally.
