Military Health System Communications Toolkit - Topics and Resources for Communicators - Monthly Topics August 2021

Total Body Preventive Health - Dental, Medical & Mental

The MHS is committed to the long-term health and vitality of our nation’s warfighters, their families, retirees, and civilians. Part of maintaining readiness is preventing the onset of diseases and injuries that pose a threat to the Defense community. Prevention enhances the overall health, performance and availability of the force.

Total Body Preventive Health and Total Force Fitness 

Service members balance demanding jobs while maintaining mission readiness. Proper diet and regular exercise are critical components of preventive health.

Immunization Awareness Month

Vaccines are critical tools in the healthcare arsenal, with a long, successful history of fighting or eradicating disease. During National Immunization Awareness Month, we want to remind beneficiaries that vaccines have saved more lives around the world than any other medical invention.

Back to School 

Many children will be returning to school in-person in the fall for the first time in more than a year. It is to be expected that students, and even parents and teachers may experience anxiety. Also, parents need to be aware that most schools and daycare centers require immunizations for enrollment.

Summer Safety - Dehydration

Summer is upon us, and many are looking forward to returning to fun-filled outdoor activities. When recreating outdoors in the summer, make sure to protect your skin and eyes from harmful sun exposure.
