Dear Friends,

On behalf of Spanish Sleep Society we are deeply sad to inform you that the immediate Past President of our society, Dr Joaquin TerĂ¡n-Santos, aged 59, passed away last June 28th, after a fast oncological disease, diagnosed past November.

For the Spanish Sleep Society it is a big loss, as Joaquin gave an important drive to the interdisciplinary nature of Sleep Medicine in Spain, and for the accreditation and recognition of our field.
Many of you knew his professional excellency and his important scientific achievements, but above all, he was a warm and friendly person that we will miss. 

Best regards

Javier Puertas
Vice-president of Spanish Sleep Society
