How well do you think that you know yourself? The Health Risk Assessment (HRA) is a multifaceted interactive tool offered annually at www.afmcwellness.com. Your information is confidential.

Participants who complete the HRA enter information such as blood pressure, cholesterol and life-style behaviors.

When finished you receive a confidential Personal Wellness Report designed to help you understand potential lifestyle health risks, links with support information, and an action plan to enhance healthy life-style behaviors.

Benefits of completing the HRA:

  • To help you view your prospects for future good health.
  • To provide a catalyst for health behavior change.
  • To enable you to objectively monitor your health over time.
  • To determine how ready you are to change certain behaviors.
  • To get an HRA completion award.

Complete your HRA in 5 easy steps:

Step 1: Go to www.afmcwellness.com.

Step 2: Click on Civilian wellness or Active Duty wellness

Step 3: Log on with your user ID and password (if you have forgotten, click on 'Forgot ID/Password')

If this is your first time click on "Create Account" -- you will be asked some preliminary questions and then you will create your account by selecting your own login ID and password.

Step 4: Click on "Take the assessment now" and answer all of the questions (the HRA takes approximately 10 minutes).

Step 5: Print your Personal Wellness certificate.

Great job! You just took the first step to living a healthier life.

Bonus step: Take your Personal Wellness Certificate to your local CHPS office to claim your award (To be eligible for the award, HRA should be completed within 2012).

Don't forget to check out the calendar at www.AFMCWellness.com to learn about all of the upcoming health education opportunities on your base.
