Abstract:

This study was conducted to determine the factors that influence Army spouses to attend a wellness clinic. Army spouses were surveyed to assess their knowledge and attitudes about the wellness clinic. Five factors effecting clinic use were identified. Perceived health status Income Worry about health Education Attitude towards military medical care. The lack of awareness of the wellness clinic, combined with a high level of interest on the part of the population, indicated that minimal marketing efforts may bring significant increases in useage. The author included some specific recommendations for marketing the wellness clinic.
