Healthy Living Calendar
Our team of health professionals can assist you in achieving your health and wellness goals. We work closely with your Primary Care Manager (PCM) and are located within the Internal Medicine Medical Home. Our services include:
Behavioral Health Consultation
Behavioral Health Consultation is designed to improve your overall emotional and physical well-being by enhancing your ability to make lifestyle modifications, manage stress and address emotional concerns.
The Behavioral Health Consultants collaborate with your PCM to listen to your concerns and offer solution-focused strategies, education and skills. They can address the impact of short-term and chronic medical conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, sleep concerns, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship problems and anger.
Did you know that what you eat can increase your blood pressure or blood cholesterol level? Our nutritionists are here to answer your questions and explain how diet is used to treat various medical conditions. We will help you set realistic eating and exercise goals to meet your health and weight goals. We know that changing eating habits is not easy, so let us help.
Mind-Body Medicine Program
This program will equip you with tools to reduce stress, manage pain, enhance sleep and optimize well-being. Mind-Body skills include mindfulness, yoga, relaxation and positive psychology. Mind-body therapists will support you on your healing journey and tailor sessions to meet your individual needs and goals.
Tobacco Cessation Program
No matter how long you have been smoking, it is never too late to quit. Our health educators offer a variety of tobacco cessation programs designed to give you the tools you need to quit tobacco and stay tobacco free forever. Options include individual appointments, group classes and online programs. FDA approved medications and non-nicotine options are available.
Acupuncture is a technique in which practitioners stimulate specific points on the body by inserting thin needles through the skin. Acupuncture may help ease chronic low-back pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis/knee pain. It also may help reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent migraine headaches.
Sexual Health & Intimacy
Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being related to sexuality. Multiple physical, psychological, and emotional changes that occur with illness, or injuries, can impact one or more areas of a person’s sexual health. Sexual Health & Intimacy sessions can help you address these and other sexual health issues.
Our programs are open to all active duty members, retirees and beneficiaries. Most do not require a referral. Call 301-295-0105 to make an appointment. Staff and contractors may also attend most classes.
