Rolling Strong, a provider of health and wellness programs for transportation companies and their drivers, has announced it is providing participants in the St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund (SCF) diabetes prevention program with a free six-month membership to the Rolling Strong app, and it is linking its platform to the fund’s Rigs without Cigs program.
The St. Christopher Fund CDC diabetes prevention program was launched in February 2021. Initial participants who have completed the first six months and are now in the maintenance phase for the next six months will receive a free membership to the Rolling Strong app with wellness coaching to support them in maintaining their progress.
SCF’s free diabetes prevention program initiative is an evidence-based lifestyle change program open to all Class A OTR drivers at risk for Type 2 diabetes. The year-long program is led by a specially trained lifestyle coach and features webinars focusing on nutrition, exercise, stress management, and more. Eligible drivers who enroll can receive scales, blood pressure cuffs, activity trackers, and resistance bands to help with tracking and success. Participants are required to send reports on weight, blood pressure, and activity.
Rolling Strong is also adding a section to its app referring drivers to the SCF Rigs without Cigs program. The tobacco cessation participation and incentive program, which is open to all OTR drivers with a Class A CDL, provides a variety of rewards for being tobacco free after one month, three months, six months, and one year.
