Pro Player Health Alliance is already preparing for the next Sleep Apnea Awareness event which will be held in California this May. Part of the "Tackle Sleep Apnea” campaign is traveling across the country to promote Sleep Apnea awareness. Many people are unaware that they need to seek treatment as it has become customary for individuals to feel tired throughout the entire day. This is due to the stress put on the body from not being able to breathe for up to 10-15 times per hour while asleep.
According to the National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research, about 38,000 deaths occur in the US on an annual basis that are related to Sleep Apnea making it the “Silent Killer.” Former San Diego Chargers player and Pro Player Health Alliance member Mark Walczak, “My mission is to spread public awareness. I want to get all current and former NFL players screened for this condition…"
The public awareness event at Scripps Schaetzel Center this May will be hosted by one of the country’s most experienced and well-known doctors, Dr. Bradley Eli. By providing all solutions to sufferers of Sleep Apnea that are available on the market, Dr. Eli will find a way to treat any patient even if it means creating a new appliance. Dr. Eli: “We want 2013 to be the year we raise awareness of sleep disorder breathing to the community of women and men.”
