Clinical Research Center Proposal. Aerobics/Nutrition/Wellness Institute.
Blackburn, George L.
There is growing belief in the wellness concept by health educators, governmental agencies, corporations, and the general public. They believe preventive medicine not only improves the health of our population but also could be the only way our health care system can survive and deliver adequate care to the acutely ill. With few minor exceptions little has been done to change current health practices. The Aerobics/Nutrition/Wellness Institute (ANWI) is developing a program for individuals, groups, and organizations desiring a high level of wellness through self-regulated activities. The primary activities include aerobic fitness, use of the U.S. Dietary Goals, and stress management using behavior modification technology. The program will provide education and will make a major effort to improve the community fitness, diet, and health where ANWI facilities exist. A major part of the clinical research center activity of the institute will be to develop a program to analyze and validate the health promotion and disease prevention program of the ANWI. (JD)
