FORT LEE, Va. -- At Kenner, we have a new strategy called Army Medicine 2020. Instead of pills, procedures, and doctors visits, we are emphasizing the Performance Triad that focuses on the three pillars of wellness: sleeping well, eating right and being active.
Kenner Army Health Clinic invites the community to attend a free weeklong event, titled “Kenner Kicks off Warrior Care Month.” It will introduce a 12-week campaign that will challenge our Soldiers, families and the entire Fort Lee community to score points towards good health.
The football-themed activity kicks off Nov. 21 with the observance of the Great American Smokeout and World Diabetes Day.
Tobacco-free living and prevention and management of diabetes will be highlighted. Quitting techniques, and healthy lifestyle tips will encourage participants to achieve wellness based on the three pillars of the Performance Triad.
The Kenner Clinic vision is your active participation in our 12-week Warrior Care Challenge. Participants will earn points doing various Performance Triad activities. Activities range from a trail walk to cooking a vegetarian meal.
The Kenner Health Care Coaches will track your progress as you hand in your quarterly score cards. The overall goal is for participants to earn points based on activities in which they and their family members choose to engage.
Throughout the challenge, visit the pharmacy area to view the Kenner playing field, showcasing participants’ progress towards scoring their touchdown to wellness. Hands-on display tables support the Performance Triad pillars.
Super Bowl Sunday – Feb. 2 – concludes the 12-week Warrior Care Challenge.
Kenner encourages all to join our Warrior Care Challenge as you score your own personal goals toward a better, healthier you.
