Building a Healthier You!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all healthy living classes are now virtual till further notice.  For more information what virutal classes we offer and how to enroll, please call (520) 792-1450 extension 4971.

Do you want to become a healthier you? Whether you have a chronic medical condition, or just want to live a healthier life, the Southern Arizona VA Health Care System(SAVAHCS) has services that can help you achieve your desired health goal.

Most of us know that we should eat healthier, move more, stop smoking, not drink so much, but sometimes we just don’t know where to start, how to start, or maybe how to do what we want to do. This page is designed to help you Build a Healthier You! With information on VA and SAVAHCS resources, we’ve got what you need.

You can check out the Veteran Wellness Guide HERE. It is a short self-paced workbook that provides information on different aspects of well-being and is organized into short easy-to-do activities. It is a good quick start guide to learning more about what is most important to you in achieving optimal health.
