Long Island, NY (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
David Gergen, President of Pro Player Health Alliance (PPHA), is no stranger to working with some of the biggest names in NFL history. After receiving support from the likes of Larry Fitzgerald, Eric Dickerson, Roy Green, Mike Haynes, Derek Kennard, Tony Dorsett and Michael Irvin, Gergen officially announced the support of two-time Super Bowl Champion New York Giant RB O.J. Anderson at the next PPHA "Tackle Sleep Apnea" event that will be held in Long Island, NY on December 5, 2013 and co-hosted by Long Island Dental Sleep Medicine.
O.J. Anderson, in addition to Derek Kennard, will be the second Super Bowl Champion attending the event. Dr. Seltzer and Dr. Rein of Long Island Dental Sleep Medicine, due to their many years of experience and practicing in New York, have been trusted by O.J. Anderson to screen/treat him for his sleep apnea. David Gergen says, "Dr. Rein and Dr. Seltzer are two of the finest dentists I know; I only refer the players I work with to the best doctors in the country. After this event, I want Dr. Rein and Dr. Seltzer to be known as the doctors who treat NFL greats. They will even be at the Malo Clinic in New Jersey at the Super Bowl Symposium this year."
These events have become quite popular among the players; having over 160 treated since launching the campaign. David Gergen says, "The idea 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." The PPHA events are perfect for individuals who want to learn more about sleep apnea and alternative treatment options to CPAP such as the oral appliance known as the Sleep Herbst. Players have reported that, after being treated with the Sleep Herbst, they no longer have headaches or day time fatigue, that they began to dream again and many say most importantly that they have noticed a significant amount of healthy weight loss.
