The Transportation Research Board and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration are hosting an International Conference on Commercial Driver Health and Wellness Nov. 8-10 in Baltimore. Conference topics will include impacts of health factors on driver safety and performance, benefits and costs of driver health and wellness programs, and real-world case studies documenting carrier experience with driver health and wellness.

“This conference presents a great opportunity for the industry to share its experience in implementing health and wellness programs, instilling a wellness philosophy as part of the corporate culture, and tips for effective implementation for both large and small carriers,” says Rebecca Brewster, president of the American Transportation Research Institute and a member of the conference organizing committee.
