Fort Sam Houston is getting its own Army Wellness Center. 
 

The Army Wellness Center mission is prevention, and its approach is holistic - meaning providers look at the whole person -- physical, psychological, and social traits -- when providing service. The individual gets a Health Assessment to analyze their current health status and ability to increase physical activity. They then receive a custom-designed exercise program to achieve the goals.
