Former NFL Superstars make Reservation at Mama Campisi’s Restaurant for Snoring Sleep Apnea Education and Screening
Date:12/10/2015

“When a player’s athletic career ends, the level of exercise is reduced dramatically while caloric intake often remains high. This could lead to snoring and sleep apnea, along with other serious comorbidities,” said Andre Collins, Executive Director of the Professional Athletes Foundation and NFLPA Director of Former Players. “The HOPE Program provides former players with a team environment that encourages participants to adopt healthier lifestyle choices.

David Gergen, President of the Pro Player Health Alliance (PPHA), knows that millions of people are not aware how poor sleep is affecting their health and overall well-being. “We all know what loud snoring is, but may not realize it can also be a symptom of sleep apnea”, said Gergen Bad sleep habits are also responsible for many serious health problems such as drowsy driving, memory problems, Type 2 Diabetes, depression, heart disease, moodiness and even erectile dysfunction.
Former player, Larry Frost, wants all retired NFL Players in the St Louis area to take part in this free event and hear stories from former NFL players who have benefited from understanding more about their sleep health and why they are personally motivated to become so involved in educating the public.

The event location is a landmark in Saint Louis:
"Mama's on the Hill"
2132 Edwards
St Saint Louis, MO
314-776-3100

“Recently the news has been filled with sleep related deaths that can be linked directly to sleep apnea,” said Gergen. “These we know about because of their high public visibility but we know that there are thousands upon thousands of deaths that don’t make the news each year. The majority of these thousands of deaths are everyday people who walked through their dentist or primary care physicians doors unscreened and untested.”

Also attending the event will be American Sleep and Breathing Academy health experts and dentists Bill Busch DDS, Jay Ohmes DDS and Kevin Postol DDS, who will be available to answer sleep health related questions and offer recommendations as to best practices and treatment. Sleep health screening using the Nox T3 by CareFusion home sleep diagnostic device and if indicated a ZQuiet anti-snoring mouthpiece will be provided at no charge as part of the screening. All data collected will be submitted to the Hope program for inclusion in the Living Heart Foundation sleep research program.
