The AWC Division oversees and manages the development and implementation of AWCs across CONUS and OCONUS. AWCs provide programs and services that improve and sustain health, performance, and readiness of the Total Army delivered by highly trained professionals.
The AWCs are an actionable platform delivering evidence based programs that improve individual and unit performance and readiness, utilizing advanced testing technology to provide immediate feedback to improve Soldier performance. Along with improving fitness, AWC programs can directly impact readiness by reducing lost or limited duty time and the number of Soldiers on physical profile. The primary goal of the AWC program is to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injury, improve overall performance, and enhance the self-efficacy of individuals to maintain lifelong healthy behaviors. AWCs are integrated with the Patient Centered Medical Home as part of the Comprehensive Care Plan.
