Healthy Army Communities is an Army-wide effort to improve the health and wellness of the total Army Community. Healthy Army Communities focuses on leveraging existing best practices as well as developing strategies to help encourage healthy lifestyles, while also reshaping Army communities to support healthier places at and around Army Installations to live, learn, eat, work, play, shop and sleep. Healthy Army Communities aims to increase Readiness, Resiliency, Retention, and Recruitment by developing a total Army Culture of Health.
