The mission of the Health and Wellness Center is to maintain and improve the physical, social and mental well-being of the Nellis community. The HAWC targets wellness in fitness, nutrition, tobacco use cessation, stress management, substance abuse and other related preventive programs. Upon referral or individual request, individuals can be evaluated and receive counseling by experts at the HAWC. Services include fitness assessments, nutrition education, stress management, education on cardiovascular disease and cancer prevention. All eligible beneficiaries and Department of Defense civilians may participate in program services. For tobacco use cessation, eligible beneficiaries have two methods to quit the habit. The first method is to call the American Lung Association Quit Line Program at 877-695-7848. The ALA has registered nurses and respiratory therapists to guide participants through the steps necessary for ending tobacco use. The second method is Tobacco Cessation classes offered at 4 p.m. every Thursday. The course consists of five class sessions that include Stress Management, Weight Control, Medical Aspects of Smoking, How to Quit and Relapse Prevention. HAWC personnel are available to come to your squadron to present briefings on various health topics.
