Rolling Strong Supports Driver Appreciation Week
Driver Appreciation Health Fairs to be held at eight TA and Petro Stopping Center locations across the country
Riverside, Mo. – September 7, 2017 – Rolling Strong, the provider of driver wellness programs for transportation companies and their drivers, as well as owner-operators, today announced it is partnering with the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and TA and Petro Stopping Centers during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week to provide CDL wellness coaches and conduct health screenings across the country.
“Rolling Strong has always been focused on reversing the declining health of America’s CDL drivers,” said Rolling Strong Founder and COO Bob Perry. “By powering the TCA Wellness program and working with TA and Petro Stopping Centers during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, we can empower more drivers to take control of their health and wellness, and make them less likely to suffer an on-the-job injury and get home safely.”
During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week this year, Rolling Strong Driver Appreciation Health Fairs will be held at eight TA and Petro Stopping Centers across the country. At each location, Rolling Strong will provide CDL wellness coaches from 10 am until 4 pm who will conduct health coaching and screenings consisting of weight, BP, heart rate, and BMI. Coaches will also have self-testing glucose readers available for drivers who need to test their blood sugar.
At all locations, Rolling Strong will be raffling a FIT System (Freightliner In-Cab Trainer) to drivers that have a basic health screening and coaching session. The St. Christopher Truckers Fund, a charity that helps sick and injured truckers and their families, is providing vouchers for drivers to get free flu, shingles and pneumonia vaccines at participating pharmacies.
