Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) May 31, 2014
"Tackling Sleep Apnea", a national sleep apnea awareness campaign launched by Pro Player Health Alliance (PPHA), has been "a huge success" according to David Gergen, President of Pro Player Health Alliance. What started with helping NFL great Derek Kennard treat his sleep apnea has now turned into multiple health evaluations across the country, spread awareness to thousands, offering affordable home sleep testing solutions and ultimately treatment for over 200 former NFL players.
Mr. Gergen mentions, "We are also now focusing on making sure people are aware of home sleep testing, and we are offering to guide people through that process who think they are in need without any cost to them." Anyone can contact Pro Player Health Alliance for information on sleep disordered breathing, help with getting tested and referred to a PPHA trusted doctor.
Tony Dorsett, who was treated by Dr. Harry Sugg, recently took part in a Pro Player Health Alliance commercial on sleep apnea as a way of showing his support. He has, along with Roy Green, Derek Kennard and Mark Walczak, mentioned how being treated for sleep apnea has changed their lives.
