The goal of the Health Promotion and Wellness (HPW) Department at the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center (NMCPHC) is to provide Sailors, Marines, beneficiaries, retirees, and DoD civilians with educational resources and tools to assist them in making informed decisions on health and lifestyle behaviors. The HPW Department aims to create an understanding that prevention optimizes mission readiness and enhances overall well-being. To do this, the Department focuses on eight health topics based on the National Prevention Strategy including Healthy Eating, Active Living, Tobacco Free Living, Reproductive and Sexual Health, Psychological and Emotional Well-being, Injury and Violence Free Living, Preventing Drug Abuse and Excessive Alcohol Use, and Weight Management, and addresses the needs of two force population subsets: Wounded, Ill, and Injured (WII) Sailors and Marines, and Navy Reserve. These health topics address key elements of the Navy's 21st Century Sailor and Marine Initiative and aligns with the Defense Department's Operation Live Well initiative.

NMCPHC invites the participation of organizations and programs that share our commitment to the health and wellness of our armed forces. Through our partnership program, we strive to collaborate and help spread HPW campaign messages and promote and advance the shared missions of partners through our communication channels.


Benefits of Partnership

Once a partnership has been established, NMCPHC will provide turnkey materials and information to help support partners with quick, easy, and inexpensive outreach, such as:

  • Newsletters that address current health issues, education and training opportunities, and other news; feature new or updated health and wellness resources; and highlight partnership news across the Military Health System. View past issues .
  • Collateral materials for distribution to partner members and ready-to print content about a variety of health topics for newsletters and other publications.
  • Promotion of partner messages and activities to the HPW audience through our articles, newsletters, blogs, and social media channels.
