Becoming ill while driving, it’s happened to all of us who have driven any length of time over the road. What do you do?  Many drivers say they just “tough it out” and keep driving.  But there are many times that you can’t keep driving, especially when it becomes unsafe to drive. Some drivers say to pull over and rest, or even going to a motel.

Others have gone to the ER  or Clinic. One thing is for sure though, there comes a time when medical help is a must. There are many drivers who thought they could just park and sleep it off and found themselves at the edge of death.  You can read some of these stories on our FaceBook wall.

Then, there are the most unfortunate who have been found deceased after going missing for days.  Make no mistake, your health should ALWAYS be ahead of your job on the all important priority list. New technology has allowed for one more solution if one becomes  ill on the road. Unlimited, 24/7 access to the quality care you need, all from your phone or computer.

Tonight January 9th 7PM ET, we will discuss “Medical Help for Truckers While Out on the Road”   Diana Kerekes joins us as our special guest to discuss the many benefits of Call a Doc Anytime, a breakthrough service that brings the doctor to the trucker.

Diana Kerekes is a Master Life, Business and Success Coach and has been a Registered Nurse for 30 years. As a visiting nurse for many of those years, she understands the impact and the consequences of a patient not being able to reach a doctor when needed. As the daughter of a former 25 year trucker, she knew there had to be a better way for professional truckers to reach medical assistance while living life on the road.

While working to make people understand the importance of preventive medicine, her work also consists of helping truck drivers realize that they can receive medical help, 24/7, even when out on the road, all through the magic of technology: Call a doc anytime.

Through Call a Doc Anytime, truckers are able to “see” their doctors through several devices, including, web cam, phone, video or mobile application. Join us tonight as we share our experiences of becoming ill while driving OTR.  What’s your story?
