“Tackling Sleep Apnea” is the newest offensive play in the arsenal of doctors across the country thanks toDavid Gergen, President of Pro Player Health Alliance. By teaming up with NFL legends, Pro Player Health Alliance (PPHA) has taken the first step in the future of battling sleep apnea. Fans from every team can attend free public events hosted by PPHA and learn about the personal struggles of their football heroes as well as become educated about the deadly disorder. Also, newly added to the PPHA website, are personal sleep pages for NFL greats such as Tony Dorsett, Derek Kennard, Roy Green and Mark Walczak. In fact, Tony Dorsett recently launched a sleep apnea commercial that can be found athttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCGhfhwGq9E
The personal sleep pages give individuals a place where sleep apnea specific products can be ordered. One of which is the Snore Owl, that is a fix for snoring and temporary solution for minor sleep apnea. In addition, by visiting the PPHA website athttp://www.proplayersleep.org, home sleep tests can be ordered upon request.
This allows anyone in the country to have the opportunity to find out exactly what happens while they sleep in the comfort of their own bed. PPHA has treated over 160 former professional athletes and educating over 1,000 people in communities throughout the country on the harmful effects of leaving it untreated by hosting free public events; the personal sleep pages of NFL greats is only going to improve those numbers and help save lives. David Gergen says, “I urge anyone, if possible, to come to these events. And if you don’t have an event in your area, visit the website and be proactive in educating yourself. Sleep apnea is real and the effects are real. Why let it go untreated?”
David Gergen says, “We want 2013 to be the year we raise awareness of sleep disorder breathing to the community of women and men.” To learn more abuot Pro Player Health Alliance and the “Tackle Sleep Apnea” campaign as well as order a home sleep test or Snore Owl, visit http://www.proplayersleep.org.
