“We will be holding the nation’s largest ever public awareness event for snoring and sleep apnea.

Padre Murphy’s is a sports oriented bar with a focus on good atmosphere and food and was clearly the best choice by any measure," said Gergen.

The Arizona Cardinals are also supporters. Current and retired NFL players will be on site highlighting the devastating impact that undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea can have on a person’s health. NFL greats that will be in attendance include Larry Fitzgerald, Roy Green, Eric Dickerson, Seth Joyner and Marcus Allen to name just a few.

There will also be clinicians from the American Sleep and Breathing Academy to answer questions about sleep disorders and to help people who already have a sleep diagnosis achieve consistent care using their PAP machine or Oral Appliance for snoring and sleep apnea.
