David Gergen and Courtney Meier

As each year passes, the fight against sleep apnea gains momentum exponentially. That momentum has largely been fueled by David Gergen and Pro Player Health Alliance(PPHA). His success has come from bringing together powerful allies such as the American Sleep And Breathing Academy (ASBA), Living Heart Foundation (LHF) and RemZzzs together to team up and "Tackle Sleep Apnea". Through public awareness events, health evaluations, news appearances and partnering with these said organizations and more, PPHA is improving the sleep apnea community as a whole nationwide.

David Gergen, who is the Executive Director in the Dental Division of the ASBA is pleased to announce that the 2015 Sleep & Wellness Conference will be taking place April 10-11, 2015 in Scottsdale, AZ at the DoubleTree Resort located at 5401 N. Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85250. Mr. Gergen has stated, "The upcoming Sleep & Wellness Conference promises to be the most worthwhile sleep conference of 2015". Some of the featured speakers will be the likes of Mac Newton, Congressman Marty Russo, Bob Rutan Founder of RemZzzs, Dr. John Tucker, Professor Peter Chase and Dr. Rod Willey, owner of the largest standing dental sleep practice in the country.

The latest addition of RemZzzs to the team was inspired by Mr. Gergen's girlfriend, Courtney Meier. Although she is a key component in helping dental offices begin the correct path to treating their patients for obstructive sleep apnea, Courtney believes in treating the patient not the disorder whether it be CPAP, fitness, diet or oral appliance therapy. Courtney Meier, who is in great physical shape, was acknowledged by David Gergen after she "ran me off the mountain" as he stated. This brought forth a partnership with RemZzzs, who is a top notch company dedicated to making it more comfortable for CPAP users. Those looking to purchase any RemZzzs mask liners can enter the code carl81 at to receive an exclusive discount thanks to a partnership with Carl Eller, Hall of Fame Defensive End and NFL Champion on the 1969 Minnesota Vikings.
