Abstract

  • (NON-PEER REVIEWED) Obesity Among Truck Drivers Project’s aim was to address the barriers drivers have to obtaining nutritious meals on the road. Truckers were recruited from terminals around Boston. Drivers checked in with a counselor every week via phone to report eating habits and receive advice on how to alter behavior. My role in this research was to determine the link between sleep deprivation and obesity. The link between serotonin andmelatonin release and their role in the sleep cycle was established as the mechanism of action. (08/2006)
