Miami, FL (May 2, 2012) – TheManInWhite.ORG (TMIW) is pleased to inform professional trucker drivers that (for the next thirty days) they can download a free audio book on health specifically designed for truckers. Titled Truckers’ Road to Health, it is the first in a series audiobook on health care targeting professional truck drivers. This audio format is an ideal resource for professional truck drivers, who can learn about their health as they drive. Topics include lung disease, heart disease, diabetes, nutrition, obesity and sleep apnea.
Truckers’ Road to Health was authored by medical specialists, edited into laymen’s terms, and narrated by professional voice talent. Other contributors include Joe Martin, CEO of Truckercise.net, and Matthew S. Thiese, PhD, MSPH, University of Utah School of Medicine, Instructor of Occupational Injury Epidemiology - with special research Interests in Physical Activity in Occupational Populations and Commercial Driver Health.
Of Audible’s 30-day free audiobook offer, Scott Weidner, CEO of Transport for Christ, said, “What better way to learn about one’s health? We are very fortunate to be partnered with TMIW in an effort to improve the wellness of individual drivers and the industry as a whole.”
“Understanding how to take control of your health is crucial, especially for the trucking industry which is experiencing increased regulation pertaining to driver fitness. This audiobook should be mandatory for every driver, male or female.” said Ellen Voie, CEO of Women in Trucking, whose input resulted in the inclusion of several key topics on womens’ health in the audiobook.
According to the American Trucking Association, there are approximately 4.2 Million professional Truck Drivers, and approximately 1.7 Million operate “big rigs” for long hauls. Audiobooks provide a solution for millions of busy people who struggle to find enough time to read, including the 105 Million Americans who drive to work alone every day.
Truckers wishing to take advantage of Audible’s offer will be able to try a 30-day free trial for the Gold plan. Although the credit can be used on any listed title in Audible.com’s catalog, it is hoped that truckers will apply the credit towards the audiobook of “Truckers’ Road to Health.” Trial (new) membership is subject to Audible.com’s general trial terms. Audible’s 30-day free trial for new members is available at TheManInWhite.ORG and Audible.com/truckerhealth, and will be available for truckers to try anytime over the next six months. “This is a great opportunity for drivers to get an excellent tool to improve their health for free,” said Dr. Matthew S. Thiese, PhD, MSPH. “This is a wonderful audiobook on truckers’ health,” said Joe Martin, adding, “Get it now.”
“The usual price is $23.85, so there is absolutely no excuse not to take advantage of this free book offer”, said Efrain Arroyave, MD, CEO for TMIW.
