Holistic Health & Fitness
Management System // #A214-052

The Army currently measures Soldiers' health primarily using physical fitness data. This ignores the other four readiness domains targeted by the Army's Holistic Health and Fitness (H2F) initiative: sleep, nutritional, spiritual, and mental. The Army wants a digital interface tool that incorporates all five H2F domains, so we can better address Soldier readiness and well-being.
