ARLINGTON, Va. (1/30/2014) – Guard Your Health, a health promotion campaign sponsored by the Army National Guard Office of the Chief Surgeon, provides an online platform for Guard Soldiers and their families to access health and medical readiness information.
This month, many of the Army National Guard’s 360,000 drilling and activated Soldiers made New Year’s resolutions to create long-term healthy habits and improve their readiness.
However, with all of the responsibilities Guard members juggle as civilians and Soldiers, sometimes New Year’s resolutions are tough to achieve.
That’s where Guard Your Health comes in – it’s packed with tools, information and inspiration to help make total force fitness-not to mention New Year’s Resolutions-a reality for Army National Guard Soldiers and their families.
You can access the website anytime, anywhere. Check out the campaign today at www.guardyourhealth.com to learn more about topics like nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress, dental health, readiness, and family resilience.
