In honor of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week 2010 (Sept. 19-25), Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab www.roadsidemed.com wants to thank the professional drivers who deliver the food we eat, the medicine we need, and the clothes we wear, by providing free health and wellness checks at all of their clinics nationwide.

During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab is providing free, comprehensive health and wellness checks on vital health measures such as weight, BMI, heart rate, blood pressure, and blood sugar, along with counseling from Roadside Medical’s experienced staff.  

As the leading provider of health and wellness services specifically for drivers and the transportation industry, Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab is located right at Pilot Travel Centers and Flying J Travel Centers along major highway routes (visit www.roadsidemed.com for locations).

“National Truck Driver Appreciation Week gives us a chance to thank the professional truck drivers that deliver life’s essentials – and at the same time, explain how important they are for our country,” said Bob Perry, “The Trucker Trainer,” president for Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab and chair for the American Trucking Associations’ Safety Management Council’s Health & Wellness Working Group. “Professional truck drivers move America safely, efficiently and on time. Roadside Medical is pleased to support the drivers by providing free health and wellness checks in order to keep them on the road to better health.”

There are over 3.4 million professional truck drivers nationwide – delivering the goods U.S. consumers need every day of the year. Logging over 431 billion miles per year, trucks delivered 10.2 billion tons of freight in 2008, or 68.8 percent of total U.S. freight tonnage. Professional truck drivers are more essential to the national economy than ever before, and they’re delivering their loads safely and professionally.
