The Health Promotions Program (formerly known as the Health and Wellness Center) is part of the 21st Medical Squadron and are staffed with medical professionals dedicated to prevention education, evidence-based intervention and health enhancement. These "one-stop" shops for health, fitness, nutrition, tobacco cessation and outreach utilize programs to decrease health risks, enhance fitness and conditioning, and increase human performance. Referrals to Peterson AFB may be given for nutritional counseling and with an exercise physiologist.
Our services are open to active duty, retirees, reservists, military dependents, and base-employed civilians and contractors. Certain programs are limited to medical beneficiaries. Exercise, nutrition and tobacco programs are open to those over the age of 16.
We have a BodPod to assess body fat and a FitMate Pro for metabolic testing. The clinic gives individual or classroom-size instruction on healthy sleep tips, stress management, Meals in Minutes and "Dominate Your Weight." We have a relaxation chair that visitors can use for a quick massage.
