Long Island, New York (PRWEB) November 18, 2013
After recently being nominated for the NFL Hall of Fame, 7 time NFL All-Pro Nick Lowery will join the elite lineup which includes fellow 2014 Hall of Fame nominee, Super Bowl MVP in 1991 O.J. Anderson, Super Bowl Champions and All-Pro's Bart Oates, Derek Kennard along with New York Jets QB Boomer Esiason and Cardinals WR Roy Green both All-Pro's. The next sleep apnea awareness event hosted by Pro Player Health Alliance and Long Island Dental Sleep Medicine is on December 5, 2013 at the Long Island Marriott in Uniondale.
Nick Lowery has already been treated for sleep apnea by Pro Player Health Alliance in Phoenix, AZ where most of his charity work is done. Among several community services he now is involved in, Lowery founded The Nick Lowery Youth Foundation which is an Arizona non-profit organization that provides leadership institutes and workshops to enable youth to lead positive lives. David Gergen, Executive Director of Pro Player Health Alliance said, "Nick is a great man to have on board. He's a guy that will take time to help not only his former teammates, but the general public as well. He fits in perfectly with us and what we're trying to accomplish."
Mr. Gergen mentioned he was attending one of Nick Lowery's cerebral palsy charity events in Phoenix when Lowery heard his good friend and former teammate Boomer Esiason was going to be attending the sleep apnea awareness event in New York. Upon confirmation he said, "Count me in." The event, which will also include The Living Heart Foundation's HOPE Super Bowl Program founded by Dr. Archie Roberts, is expected to be the largest and most publicized Pro Player Health Alliance event to date.
