Abstract:

The Army Medical Department, like the entire health care delivery system in the United States, is on the threshold of a change that will increasingly focus health care on wellness rather than on only the treatment of injuries and diseases. This study develops an AMEDD wellness program for implementation. Is components include personal responsibility, nutritional awareness, physical fitness, stress management, and environmental sensitivity. Its goal is optimal physical, emotional, and mental health. The program includes four phases and requires joint cooperation between the AMEDD and unit leaders to be fully implemented. Keywords Medical services Health care Military medicine.
