Carl Eller and the NFL Retired Players Association held a successful Super Bowl Health Symposium yesterday January 27, 2015, with several current and former NFL players attending.

The 2015 Super Bowl Health Symposium hosted by Carl Eller and the Retired Players Association yesterday, January 27th, exceeded expectations. The event was held at Lo Lo's Chicken and Waffles in Scottsdale, AZ and saw NFL legends such as Mike Haynes, Isiah Robertson, Roy Green, Carl Eller, Derek Kennard and current Giants linebacker Devon Kennard. Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich was there as well to show his support for the former players. Dr. Archie Roberts, Founder of Living Heart Foundation, was stated as the biggest advocate for former players' health. His HOPE Program, sponsored by the NFLPA, has conducted a series of health evaluations over the years and cardiovascular data collected has led to 12 published papers.

David Gergen, President of Pro Player Health Alliance, was named as the Sleep Director in the HOPE Program and has recently added sleep apnea testing to the health evaluations done by the Living Heart Foundation. Dr. Patricio Reyes, who is the chief neurologist for the US military and developed the first drug ever to help with the effects of Alzheimer's, attended the event as well. His contributions to the players' health and those around the world that have sleep disordered breathing will be studying the neurological effect untreated sleep apnea has on the brain and how the brain is affected post treatment.

Sponsors of the event were RemZzzs, Munro Realty International and Gergen's Orthodontic Lab. As the spokesman for RemZzzs and a CPAP user himself, Carl Eller wears RemZzzs mask liners to make wearing a CPAP more comfortable and has teamed up with RemZzzs to offer the promo code "carl81" that can be used as a discount when ordering online. David Gergen says, "The event was a huge success. It exceeded our expectations. I want to thank Lo Lo's Chicken and Waffles for providing us with an excellent location and even better food for the event."
