Announcement of Healthy Trucking Driver Vitality ProgramTM is the Biggest Driver Health News Ever as HTAA Hits Another Home Run at the Enormously Successful 2012 Healthy Trucking Summit

May 3, 2012

The trucking industry’s leading authority on Driver Health and Wellness, the Healthy Trucking Association of America (HTAA) unveiled the details of the new Healthy Trucking Driver Vitality ProgramTM at the recent Healthy Trucking Summit to an audience of trucking industry leaders and health and wellness professionals. The single most significant advancement to date in the nationwide Healthy Trucking MovementTM, the ground-breaking Healthy Trucking Driver Vitality ProgramTM is the new industry standard universal health and wellness platform that all professional drivers can use to improve and maintain their health.

“The nationwide Healthy Trucking MovementTM is now focused on getting every driver in America on the Healthy Trucking Driver Vitality ProgramTM as soon as possible,” says HTAA Executive Director Bill Gordon. Trucking Industry leaders, stakeholders and friends of the Healthy Trucking MovementTM are all coming together and joining our coast-to-coast effort to reach every driver in the country with the Healthy Trucking Driver Vitality ProgramTM and we greatly appreciate their support. This is an exciting time for those of us who have always believed that we CAN improve the health of the trucking industry.”

The unveiling of the Healthy Trucking Driver Vitality ProgramTM was just one of the highlights of this year’s incredibly successful HTAA Healthy Trucking Summit, the trucking industry’s most important annual health and wellness event.  This year, in addition to the many Summit events held inside the Omni Hotel at CNN Center and Philips Arena, the Summit also featured outdoor exhibits.  World-famous Andrew Young International Boulevard that runs through Centennial Olympic Park was closed for the three days of the Healthy Trucking Summit to provide space for a caravan of trucking industry health and wellness rides and exhibits and to offer free truck parking to drivers attending the Summit.  The Drive4COPD interactive shuttle offered visitors a free ride on a simulated “Trip to the Center of the Lung” and HTAA’s Premier Healthy Trucking Driver Glenn Keller’s CNN Fit Nation Participant Truck was on hand along with the TransAlive USA AmCoach and several beautiful new trucks.

“The fact that the Healthy Trucking Summit has grown so much over the past four years is proof positive that we are making a difference and that people understand and appreciate what the HTAA is doing for our nation’s drivers,” says Gordon.
