Episode 57:  Helping Truckers Live Healthier Lives, with Andrea Morley

Andrea Morley is the lead Nutritionist and Health Coach for Healthy Trucker. Andrea specializes in educating and encouraging truck drivers to make simple changes to their diet, exercise routines, and lifestyles to promote healthier living. Andrea talks with host Chad Hendricks about the high cost of unhealthy drivers, shares basic strategies that can add up to long-term health gains, and discusses why health training initiatives can be a great recruitment and retention tool for fleets.

“When people think of truckers, they typically think of men who are maybe a little bit older and unhealthy, maybe unhappy in their jobs. It’s definitely not a very attractive industry as far as recruitment.”

– Andrea Morley
