dc.description.abstractMany commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers struggle to maintain a healthy lifestyle against the demands of their job. While some previous CMV health programs have been developed, these programs have either not been widely implemented or they fail to adequately address the needs of CMV drivers with programs adaptable to their unique lifestyle challenges. Additionally, reaching this highly fragmented and mobile population has proven difficult. This report describes the development of an integrated social networking-based health effort, called Driving Healthy. The main objective of Driving Healthy was to create a unique health and wellness resource for the CMV community that provides trusted information about a variety of health topics in an easy-to-access fashion, as well as timely updates via social networking platforms. Specific objectives included the development and enhancement of the Driving Healthy website and the social networking platforms that complement the website. In doing so, additional driver-focused health information was produced, along with new outreach tools and materials and expanded connectivity options for this outreach effort. This report documents two project phases. Phase I of the project spanned the period of January 1, 2010, through July 31, 2011, with the sites being launched in January 2011. Phase II covers August 1, 2011, through November 15, 2012, and included the development of additional outreach tools.en
