FMCSA Talks to Truckers About New Medical Certification
The FMCSA recently announced two upcoming events that will take them on the road to talk directly with drivers about the new medical certification process and how it will affect them.
These “road shows”, titled “What’s New in Commercial Driver Medical Certification”, will be held in Indianapolis, IN (July 21) and in Jessup, MD (August 18).
Mary Gunnels, Ph.D., FMCSA director of the Office of Medical Programs, and Dr. Benisse Lester, the agency’s chief medical officer will present the program for truck drivers. Gunnels and Lester will discuss the importance of driver medical examinations, certification, and share the latest news on driver health and safety. Other likely topics will deal with sleep apnea, the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners, and the issuance of new medical standards.
"Do you have questions or comments for FMCSA? Share what is on your mind at a listening session. This is your chance to tell FMCSA what you think," reads an announcement for the upcoming meetings.
