‘Tackle Sleep Apnea’: NFL Greats Come Together to Raise Awareness

Written by Manny Erlich. Posted in Blog, In The News

NFL players are coming together to increase the visibility of a common and very serious chronic sleeping disorder — obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

The Healthy Living Foundation reports that sleep apnea affects nearly 20 million people in the U.S. and is often found in men with large body mass; however, people of all shapes and sizes are at risk. That’s why the “Tackle Sleep Apnea” team pairs NFL greats with dental icon David Gergen and Sleep Group Solutions to raise awareness through sharing personal experiences that educate people on the importance of being tested for the condition.
