Abstract : A program designed to modify health habits, needs to be developed within an organizational as well as a personal context. The program should also recognize that the health promotion effort should involve interventions that members of the community can focus on themselves. But will anyone out their listen? Most people now recognize the extent to which they can influence their own health and well being. But they often do not act upon that recognition, and here is where the organization must exert its influence to insure compliance with a healthy life-style. The following discussion attempts to link the two concepts, stress management, and health promotion into a cohesive fabric of organizational-personal intervention to insure a healthy military population.
