New York, New York 10021


Purpose:

The investigators are testing different ways of following up with drivers who attend our health fairs to find the best way to make sure that taxi drivers go to important medical appointments and have a regular doctor to help with their health problems.

Inclusion Criteria: Garage Inclusion: - Located in the NYC Borough of Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, or the Bronx - Has a roster of at least 100 drivers Driver Inclusion: - Male - Between 21 to 85 years of age (We are selecting participants older than three years past the legal driving age of 18, as younger drivers tend to change jobs more often) - Planning on remaining in NYC for at least 1 year, (with no vacations or trips to exceed two months) - Licensed taxi driver for at least six months - Leases taxi from NYC garage - Speaks English, Bengali, Urdu, Spanish, or French - Owns a cell phone that can receive text messages and is willing to receive text messages for this study. - Does not have a usual primary care provider(PCP) at baseline - Has not seen a doctor for an annual physical within the last year not including annual required physical for work at baseline TIPs Inclusion: - Between 21 to 85 years of age - Male - Planning on remaining in NYC for at least 1 year, (with no vacations or trips to exceed one month) - Licensed taxi driver for at least two years - Leases taxi from NYC garage - Speaks English, (English proficiency required for TIPs training) - Willing and able to attend in person TIPs training sessions - As per study team judgment, based upon the TIPs screening tool, is socially active among fellow taxi drivers, cares about health issues, and wants to help others improve their health Exclusion Criteria: Garage Exclusion: - Does not agree to sign enrollment form Driver Exclusion: - Part-time driver (drives fewer than 40 hours per week) Although it is highly unlikely for NYC taxi drivers to work for multiple garages at study baseline, drivers may switch jobs and/or their garage base affiliation while participating in this study. New jobs and/or garage base affiliations will be tracked during follow-up assessments and noted for potential limitations with study retention and intervention contamination. Drivers will be allowed to continue the study even if they are no longer working with the initial garage base.
