Throughout December and January, Air Force Materiel Command will be promoting the “Do You Know Your Numbers” wellness campaign. This campaign aims to raise awareness of the importance of knowing your numbers to help prevent chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.

“To better understand their health status, it is helpful for individuals to know how they compare to recommended health indicators,” said AFMC’s Wellness Coordinator Greg Chadwick. “These indicators are a list of ‘numbers’ — blood pressure, good and bad cholesterol, blood glucose, and body mass index are all numbers that help individuals identify their own health status.”

The goal of the “Do You Know Your Numbers” campaign is to increase participation in Cardio Risk Profile screenings and educate individuals on how risk factors impact their health, with particular attention given to those risk factors that can be improved by changes in lifestyle behavior. Early identification and management of risk factors can help individuals stay healthy and live a long, productive life.

The CRP wellness screening is available through Civilian Health Promotion Services and is free to all Department of Defense (appropriated fund) AFMC civilian employees. For more information regarding CRP screenings, contact your local CHPS team or visit www.afmcwellness.com.
