Join us for sleep apnea webinar

Don’t get caught asleep at the wheel when the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration moves forward with new health regulations, which will  include screening and/or testing for sleep apnea.

To bring you up to speed on sleep apnea, Truckers News will host a free one-hour webinar on Feb. 11 at 8 p.m. (CST) featuring Dr. Mark Berger.  The president and chief medical officer of Precision Pulmonary Diagnostics, will discuss how the disorder affects your health and how it could impact your CDL.

Berger has worked as consultant to large trucking fleets in developing sleep apnea programs. He has overseen the screening of nearly 15,000 commercial drivers and the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea in nearly 2,000 CDL holders.

Schneider National is sponsoring the webinar.

TN health hero featured in Runner’s World

Runner2[1] Truckers News 2008 Health Hero of the Year Jeff Clark is receiving international recognition with a profile on him in the December issue of Runner’s World magazine.

Clark, an avid runner and marathoner, was first featured in our March 2008 issue as part of the Fit for the Road series. He was named the 2008 Health Hero of the Year for his dedication to helping other truckers get fit as well as his personal achievements.

The Runner’s World article quotes Truckers News contributing editor Carolyn Magner (Mason) and references Truckers News’ continuing program to help drivers live healthier lifestyles.

According to Runner’s World editors, Clark is the first trucker ever be profiled in the magazine.
