The NFL Players Association on Monday said a member of the Denver Broncos football team is joining the league to help alleviate a growing list of medical conditions associated with asthma, arthritis and other ailments.
The union also announced that the NFL Players Medical Advisory Committee is being formed to work with medical experts to develop ways to help players better manage their health and protect their health.
“We are incredibly proud to have a player like Michael Vick join our team to help us in our efforts to better educate and support our players,” said David Coombs, NFLPA Executive Director.
“Michael Vick has a long history of pioneering the field of asthma treatment, and he is a great example of how our players can help their communities.
We’re looking forward to working with him to make a difference in the lives of our players and their families.”
Vick, who was born in the Bronx and has been living in Denver since 1999, has a history of using medical products to help his asthma and other health conditions.
Vick said his practice includes using natural, non-toxic, allergy-fighting products.
He also says he takes asthma medication twice a day, which he says helps reduce his overall symptoms and reduce his risk of serious complications.
The NFLPA said the league has identified more than 40 players with conditions that require medical treatment.
Vick’s medical condition includes multiple sclerosis and multiple sclerosis.
He has also been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and multiple myeloma.NFLPA Executive Vice President of Government Affairs and Chief Medical Officer Brian McCarthy said it is critical to understand the impact that prescription medications can have on players and how their health can be improved.
“The league’s mission is to protect the health and safety of our athletes, our fans, and our communities,” McCarthy said.
“As a league that cares for and supports its players and our fans through the years, it is our responsibility to ensure that players have access to the right medications and therapies to help with their illness and their overall health.”
According to the NFLPA, a medical expert working with the league’s health advisory committee will develop a process to better help players and families understand how to manage their own health and disease.
The medical expert will work with the players, the NFL, the league and the medical community to help develop an effective and affordable prescription medication program.
The plan will include information about the benefits of different medications and their side effects, the availability of medical providers, the effectiveness of each of the different medications, and a list of available treatments.
The NFLPA will continue to monitor the status of the plan as it develops and update its website with information about new and revised treatments and plans for players and family members.
The league has said it wants to help its players improve their health through more rigorous and realistic training, which includes more physical activity, a reduction in time spent sitting in a chair and more regular checkups with their physicians.
