We want 2013 to be the year we raise awareness of sleep disorder breathing to the community of men and women.

In addition to leading the way for doctors in sleep treatment across the country by speaking at “Tackling Sleep Apnea” events, Dr. Bradley Eli is continuing to reach out to the public via radio and television throughout the southern California area. He isn't slowing down there; this year he will be holding another awareness event at Scripps Memorial Hospital. Dr. Eli states, "We want 2013 to be the year we raise awareness of sleep disorder breathing to the community of men and women."

Dr. Eli and Pro Player Health Alliance's (PPHA) last event held in the La Jolla/San Diego and surrounding communities included NFL greats Mike Haynes, Roy Green, Jesse Sapolu and Mark Walczak who came out to support PPHA and help spread awareness of sleep apnea. David Gergen, President of PPHA and Gergen's Orthodontic Lab, called the event a "success" with over thirty people giving information for appointments within ten minutes after the meeting had finished.

Mr. Gergen mentions, "In order to give others the best sleep possible, awareness has to be raised in the public communities throughout the country on what a good night's sleep actually is. 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 the reason why Dr. Eli and Pro Player Health Alliance are on an all out offense against sleep apnea. To contact Dr. Bradley Eli, visit To learn more about PPHA, visit
