The Naval Health Clinic Annapolis has received the Navy Surgeon General’s Blue H Award three years in a row. This the highest level award for health promotion and wellness in the Navy and Marine Corps.
Health Promotion / Wellness is the process of enabling people to increase control over their health. Positive lifestyle and behavioral changes can improve health and enhance quality of life, which for us translates into better operational readiness and increased retention of valuable personnel.
