HEALTH PROMOTION AT THE WELLNESS CLINIC
Half of all deaths and illnesses in the United States relate directly to unhealthy lifestyle behaviors, primarily poor-diet, lack of exercise, smoking and unmanaged stress. Fostering positive healthy lifestyle changes can in fact reduce the toll of the most common chronic diseases and improve the quality of life of our military beneficiaries. Health Promotion is a process of "prevention" that begins when the individual seeks to develop and adapt healthy lifestyle behaviors. This enhances the person's state of well-being and quality of life. The Wellness Clinic is committed to this process by assisting all eligible beneficiaries in acquiring information, counseling and education on health topics, thru seminars, lectures, health fairs and individual appointments. The Health Promotion program also, provides the base commands with a "Worksite Wellness Program", that promotes healthy lifestyles behaviors. Our goal is to reduce illness and promote wellness by educating and counseling individuals in the areas of:
Preventing Heart Disease (Healthy Heart)
