Army Wellness Center Banner

 Army Wellness Center (AWC)

Mission: Army Wellness Centers provide integrated and standardized primary prevention programs and services that promote enhanced and sustained healthy lifestyles to improve the overall well-being of Soldiers and Family Members.

Core Programs offered at AWC:

  • Health assessment review - This core program is the foundation of the core program mix. This service includes general health assessments and/or risk stratification tools such as the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) risk stratification guidelines. These assessments help determine the current level of an individual’s health and identify the changes that will be necessary to reduce risk factors for disease prevention. The assessments also provide the AWC with a means to identify individuals who may need additional screening from a primary healthcare provider.
  • Physical fitness - Through exercise testing, this core program establishes a baseline for clients' physical fitness and prescribes a program of exercise to increase levels of physical fitness based on clients’ health/fitness goals.
  • Healthy nutrition - This core program utilizes metabolic testing to determine an individual’s resting metabolic rate and develop tailored strategies for weight loss, gain or maintenance.
  • Stress management - The primary goal of this core program is to identify clients’ stress levels, increase the number of clients at healthy stress levels and refer clients self-identified as “high stress” to Behavioral Health. Stress management services include biofeedback and education in stress relief techniques, positive coping skills, detecting cognitive distortions (e.g.., false thoughts that are obstacles to self-motivation) and good sleep habits.
  • General wellness education - The main goal of this core program is to increase clients’ positive health behaviors through education. Education topics include healthy lifestyles, increased resiliency, preventing chronic disease through healthy living habits and self-care. General Wellness programs may also be provided at other installation locations and events (on post schools, heath fairs, etc).
  • Tobacco education - This core program includes an assessment of an individual's tobacco status, their readiness to change, a discussion of possible options for becoming tobacco-free, and appropriate referral to tobacco cessation resources.
