Long Island, NY (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
After a successful year in sleep apnea awareness and treatment, Pro Player Health Alliance (PPHA) will be teaming up with Dr. Jeffrey Rein and Dr. Neal Seltzer of Long Island Dental Sleep Medicine to end the year with what is expected to be the largest event to-date. PPHA calls these events "Tackling Sleep Apnea," which are intended to raise awareness in the public about the deadly sleep disorder known as sleep apnea with testimonials from NFL greats. Due to their many years of experience, exceptional quality in treatment and attention to detail, Dr. Rein and Dr. Seltzer will also be screening players at the Super Bowl Symposium 2014 in New York.
The idea behind the campaign is to get as many former professional athletes treated as possible through Pro Player Health Alliance, then those players partner with sleep specialists across the country to hold free public events. David Gergen, President of PPHA, say, "Since launching the campaign, we have helped get over 160 former players treated and spread the word to more than 1,000 people in the general public throughout the nation."
The PPHA events are perfect for individuals who want to learn more about sleep apnea, alternative treatment options to CPAP such as the oral appliance known as the Sleep Herbst and to hear genuine stories from American heroes who have experienced the same complications. Where else would you go to meet NFL greats and learn about sleep apnea from experts in the industry for free? As a fun twist, Pro Player Health Alliance holds a free raffle for registered attendees that include prizes signed by the players.
