Eighty-three Navy Medicine East health care and public health commands (46) and operational reserve units (37) were honored with the Navy Surgeon General's Health Promotion and Wellness Blue H Award for 2016.

The Navy Surgeon General's Health Promotion and Wellness Award (medical category) recognizes excellence in clinical primary prevention, community health promotion and medical staff health. It measures areas such as nutrition, weight management, tobacco free living and cessation program, sexual health, fitness programs, alcohol abuse and injury prevention.

"Having so many of our medical treatment facilities, public health activities and reserve units across Navy Medicine East receive the Blue H award reinforces that our care is second to none and that we are doing our part to ensure the Navy and Marine Corps family is healthy, ready and on-the-job," said Rear Adm. Anne M. Swap, commander, Navy Medicine East.

The awards are earned at three levels: Gold Star, Silver Eagle, and Bronze Anchor. Commands that obtained 80 percent of the total available points earn the Gold level award. Commands that obtain at least 50 percent of points for each topic earn the Silver level award. All facilities that applied for the Blue H received at least the Bronze level award.
