Truckers on the Road to Better Cardiovascular Health – CARE Connections

Imagine if most days you couldn’t get a good night’s sleep, or eat a home-cooked meal, or even go for a walk.

That’s the situation many truck drivers face, and it harms their health. Read how SoN Assistant Professor Wan-chin Kuo, PhD, RN is engaging community partners in research to reduce truckers’ risk of cardiovascular disease. That’s in the March issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the SoN’s Center for Aging Research and Education. Here’s an excerpt:

“No matter how hard individual workers try, if the environment is not supportive, how can you eat healthy? How can you sleep better? When you identify so many problems as a scientist and nurse, you want to see what you can do.”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a profile of CARE Affiliate Maichou Lor, PhD, RN; a toolkit on implementing change in long-term care settings; and news and events related to older adult health and well-being.
