GATS 2018 a Huge Success!


The Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Tx. in August was a huge success
as was the Landstar Health & Wellness Pavilion. Several new free screenings were added making this years’ pavilion the best yet.

Here is a list of the FREE screenings that were offered this year:

Height, Weight, BMI and Blood Pressure testing                  Prostate Exams                             Blood Sugar Testing                                                                     Hemoglobin A1C Testing

Bone Marrow Donor Registration Drive (4th year)              Glucose Level Testing
Blood Drive (9th year)                                                                 Cholesterol Level Testing

Thanks to the generosity of many individuals and companies we were able to provide 49 mammograms to those interested and needing the screening. This was the second highest total we have achieved since this effort began back in 2015.

A special thanks to Methodist Dallas Medical Center for providing their mobile mammogram unit. We look forward to working with them for many years to come.

As always, we love our friends at Randall-Reilly who operate the show and host us each year. We’re already working on next years’ show!!

It’s going to be great!
