WHAT IS HEALTH PROMOTIONS?
Health Promotions 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.
