The mission of the Health Promotion Department is to improve and sustain military readiness, delay premature onset of disease and disability, increase productivity, and ultimately reduce health care costs. Health promotion efforts are directed at individual health, fitness, and improvement in quality of life for military personnel, family members, retirees, and other government employees.
Health education programs and awareness campaigns are designed to achieve optimal wellness by preventing avoidable illness and injury through early identification, early intervention, and sustained healthcare access. The focus of health education programs include: hypertension, tobacco use, inadequate physical fitness, excess weight or poor nutrition, irresponsible sexual practices, stress management, and avoidance of musculoskeletal injury.
Beneficiaries can be referred to the Health Promotion Department by their health care provider or can self-refer. For more information on services offered or to register for classes contact the Health Promotions Department at 257-9892.
