Services and Programs:

AWC Overview

The Army Wellness Center (AWC) is a U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) initiative overseen by the Army Public Health Center (APHC). The primary goal of the AWC program is to enhance the self-efficacy of individuals to maintain lifelong healthy behaviors. 

The AWC provides six standardized and evidence-based core programs to Soldiers, Family Members, Retirees and DA and DoD Civilians. Programs are achieved with state of the art equipment and highly trained and credentialed staff who 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.

Along with improving fitness and resiliency, AWC programs can directly impact readiness by reducing lost or limited duty time, reducing related injuries and the number of Soldiers on physical profile, and eliminating overtraining.

Core Programs and Services

  • Health Assessment Review - An analysis of a person's health status/behaviors, health/fitness goals, risk for disease, and ability to increase physical activity safely​​​.

  • Physical Fitness - State-of-the-art equipment is utilized to determine physical fitness in cardiorespiratory capacity, muscular strength/endurance, and flexibility; measurements may be used to create an individualized exercise prescription and track progress.

  • Healthy Nutrition - Indirect Calorimetry is used to measure an individual's resting metabolic rate to provide tailored strategies for weight loss, gain or maintenance.

  • Stress Management - Education in stress management and positive coping techniques, and the utilization of biofeedback technology to track progress.

  • General Wellness Education - Individual/Group Health Coaching Sessions to develop action plans to meet goals. General health/fitness classes are provided on topics such as healthy sleep habits, nutrition, stress management, and physical activity.

  • Tobacco Education - An assessment of an individual's readiness to change with a discussion of possible options for becoming tobacco-free.

Eligible Beneficiaries

  • Family Members

  • Retirees

  • DA/DoD Civilians

Appointments

Please call 573-596-9677 for questions, or to schedule an appointment or a unit assessment/class. Referrals may be made by a healthcare provider, by your unit, or you may self-refer.

Prior to your appointment, we would like you to answer a few questions about your current health habits to help us develop your individual wellness plan. Please use this link to complete the Health and Wellness Tracker Questionnaire: https://awc.army.mil. As you complete the questionnaire, follow the instructions, answer each question carefully, update any information that is not current, and click "continue" until you reach the end of the survey. You will need a CAC card to log into the site. If you do not have a CAC card, a hard copy can be completed at the AWC, 15 minutes prior to your appointment.

We look forward to your visit!

Late Policy

The AWC is an appointment-based center, so it is imperative that our clients and staff establish a cooperative partnership to adhere to appointment times. AWC will make every effort to see our clients in a timely manner. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. We strongly encourage clients to arrive 15 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment time to allow for completion of in-processing paperwork. This will aid in timely client flow, decrease wait times, and allow proper appointment booking. Clients who arrive late by 5 minutes or more, or who do not follow the preparation guidelines, may be asked to reschedule.

No Show/Cancellation

To provide the highest accessibility to our clients, we request clients call to cancel appointments 48 hours in advance rather than "no show." A broken appointment is a loss to everyone because your unused/canceled appointment time may be used by a fellow service member. Units will be notified of clients who demonstrate a pattern of failing to cancel appointments in a timely manner. Please be aware, rescheduling your appointment may push you back one month as we book follow-ups in advance. To cancel or reschedule an appointment, call 573-596-9677.
