Free screenings available at GATS’ Landstar Health Pavilion

Testing for hepatitis C was available to drivers at GATS last year.

If you’re looking to take control of your health, you’ll be able to get a head start on that at the Landstar Health & Wellness Pavilion at this year’s Great American Trucking Show.

This year’s pavilion will offer free health screenings plus cooking, fitness and educational demonstrations. DOT physicals, mammograms, sleep apnea screening and other health and fitness tips and service for truckers will be offered at the pavilion.
