April 26, 2012 at the Renaissance Hotel in Dallas Texas, a free informational event to raise awareness of sleep apnea will consist of medical doctors, sleep dentists, athletes and those who suffer from the deadly disorder. Former NFL Lineman Derek Kennard will share personal stories and experiences with sleep apnea, along with many other former NFL players will show support for the cause. Sleep Group Solutions will be offering the first 50 attendees the opportunity to take home an Embletta Home Sleep Test, which will be read by a board certified sleep doctor and a diagnosis will be given.
“This event will directly change peoples lives. For the attendees, they will not only get an opportunity to receive a diagnosis of sleep apnea and seek treatment, they will also take part in an extremely important movement to raise awareness of sleep apnea.” says Rani Ben-David, President of Sleep Group Solutions. Showing support is David Gergen from Gergen’s Orthodontic Lab, who had introduced Oral Appliance Therapy to Former NFL Lineman Derek Kennard. “After Dr. Sugg and I made an appliance for Derek, he was immediately a changed man. His health improved, he just felt better. His first thought was he wish he knew about this sooner, as it could have saved his brothers life.” says David Gergen. Derek’s brother Donald passed away in 2009 due to sleep apnea.
