Larry Fitzgerald Joins Other NFL Greats And Pro Player Health Alliance In The Quest To “Tackle Sleep Apnea”











Larry Fitzgerlad, WR for Arizona Cardinals

Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) April 13, 2013

While the cost of healthcare is soaring, millions of Americans are snoring their way into a serious disease called Obstructive Sleep Apnea. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that, “Insufficient sleep is now a public health epidemic with 50-70 million US adults suffering with a sleep or wakefulness disorder.” Medical and dental providers are diligently striving to “Wake America Up” to obstructive sleep apnea and the treatment that is available.

David Gergen, President and Founder of The Pro Player Health Alliance (PPHA) is heavily involved with legendary NFL Greats and spreading sleep apnea awareness throughout communities by taking these players to the general public on the national campaign titled “Tackling Sleep Apnea.”

The “Tackle Sleep Apnea” event held on April 18 in Phoenix, Arizona will include the likes of Arizona Cardinals superstar receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Roy Green. With Larry having close loved ones that are suffering from sleep apnea, he wants to help spread the word on the deadly disease and help the community to understand what it can do and how to get treated. Larry is hoping to find an outpouring of support from the public at the event with many people wanting to meet the players and eventually seek treatment for themselves and/or a loved one.

Come Larry Fitzgerlad and former NFL greats speak about sleep apnea at the upcoming free Pro Player Health Alliance special event. Make sure to register for this event ASAP as spots are limited. Come meet NFL players and learn about how sleep apnea is affecting you!
