Truckers News will host a free one-hour webinar on sleep apnea at 8 p.m. (CST) on Feb. 11. Dr. Mark Berger, president and chief medical officer of Precision Pulmonary Diagnostics, will discuss how the disorder affects your health and how it could impact your CDL.
Berger has worked as consultant to large trucking fleets in developing sleep apnea programs. He has overseen the screening of nearly 15,000 commercial drivers and the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea in nearly 2,000 CDL holders.
Sleep apnea is expected to be a key issue in the next set of health regulations from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
Schneider National is sponsoring the webinar.
