AUGUST - PREVENTIVE HEALTH
Flossing once a day, eating the recommended number of servings from the five food groups, and sleeping for seven or more hours each night can provide a variety of health benefits and prevent illness. Yet, according to recent Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Workplace Health Risk Assessment Annual Reports, many active duty Sailors and Marines are not engaging in these behaviors regularly to promote good health.1
In this toolbox, we provide a variety of resources and tools for health information disseminators to educateSailors, Marines, beneficiaries, retirees, and DoD civilians about the importance of these three preventive health practices in order to maintain optimal health and performance.
