Air Station Cape Cod hold 5k Run for Healthy Base Initiative
MA, UNITED STATES
Air Station Cape Cod is the only Coast Guard station chosen to participate in the Department of Defense’s Healthy Base Initiative, a project intended to have long-reaching effects on the health of active duty members and dependents. Learning what is happening to make Air Station Cape Cod a healthier base may be a preview into the future of health for other stations. The Healthy Base Initiative is the Department of Defense’s project to study the most effective ways to reduce obesity and tobacco use, which it attributes to more than $3 billion annually in healthcare costs. They chose 14 military sites to use education and innovation to encourage healthier lifestyles among active duty service members and their families.
