health promotion

Greetings from JBLE Health Promotion!

The In Flight Wellness Weekly is a series of weekly newsletters that cover four focus areas of Health Promotion - Nutritional Fitness, Physical Activity, Tobacco-Free Living and Sleep Health.  

As we enter the Dog Days of Summer, think about how your body responds to heat. More than 600 people die every year in the United States from heat-related illnesses that are preventable, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The agency estimates more than 65,000 Americans visit an emergency room for acute heat illness each summer. Adapt your exercise plans and eating habits to be safe during the summertime heat!

The information contained in each newsletter provides health and wellness tips along with general health awareness information, upcoming local wellness events, health articles, and messaging geared towards our installation community. Thank you!

Yours in Health,

Monica
