The Detroit Pistons Performance Center was the perfect venue for the large turnout. The players had the opportunity for many screenings, including cardiovascular health, carotid artery testing, nutrition review, weight management, blood tests, and sleep apnea.
David Gergen oversaw the sleep apnea screening. Dave assured high-quality screenings with his vast experience in this industry he practically invented. He stopped by the Sanford booth with their Profile® brand protein bars and discussed their program, including a certified Profile coach, personalized meal plans, and intelligent technology to track progress.
