10/5/2012 - ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- Three key health issues - drug abuse, domestic violence and breast cancer are the focus of Triple Ribbon Awareness Month.
The Health and Wellness Center is planning events throughout October to put the spotlight those important topics. All events are free and open to anyone with base access.
"Triple Ribbon Month promotes awareness of these issues," said Dani Lebovitz, HAWC health and fitness specialist and registered dietitian. "In-stead of creating several small educational events, we decided to create a multiple health awareness campaign to shine light on various health issues that face our local community and beyond.
"The goal is to promote health awareness and to build a healthier community," she added.
