Mission: The Armed Forces Wellness Center (AFWC) provides integrated and standardized programs and services that promote enhanced and sustained healthy lifestyles to improve the overall readiness of the Army.

Vision: Lead in the delivery of the most effective primary preventative health and wellness services that improve the overall well-being of Service Members, Family Members, Retirees, and Department of Defense Civilians.

Programs & Services:

The AFWC approach to service is holistic. Our staff members take into account all of an individual's physical, psychological and social circumstances when providing services. A holistic approach is important because a person's health cannot be fully addressed unless we consider the whole person.  Our Health Educators deliver primary prevention programs that will help you create and meet your health and wellness goals. You will set your goals; and AFWC staff will help put you on the path to achieving them while walking the path with you! 

All services require scheduled appointments
