Health Promotion is a combination of art and science that helps people discover, achieve, and maintain an optimum state of wellness. Unhealthy lifestyles are the major cause of illness and death in our country, an enormous burden to society, and can create a negative impact on our military’s readiness. By providing programs that help to both recognize and prevent chronic illness in addition to providing avenues to change unhealthy behaviors, our Health Promotion staff can make a positive impact on the health and lives of those we serve.
Using the Department of Health & Human Services’ “Healthy People 2020” initiative, Semper Fit Health Promotion programs focus on seven subject areas. They are Physical Activity, Tobacco Use Prevention & Cessation, Weight Management, Nutrition, Sexual Health & Responsibility, Injury Prevention, and Chronic Disease Prevention.
Since all aspects of health and lifestyle behaviors are interrelated, Semper Fit Health Promotion programs continue to provide support, awareness and educational campaigns in other related areas of health. Awareness and educational campaigns in relation to topics such as alcohol and drug use, suicide prevention, and mental health/stress management are also provided.
