COMPREHENSIVE SOLDIER & FAMILY FITNESS BUILDING RESILIENCEENHANCING PERFORMANCE COMPREHENSIVE SOLDIER & FAMILY FITNESS BUILDING RESILIENCEENHANCING PERFORMANCE Soldier Family Member DA Civilian Physical Proper Activity, Nutrition, Sleep, Healthy Behaviors for optimal performance/resilience Social Able to develop and maintain trusted, valued relationships Emotional “Best Possible Self” Demonstrates self control, stamina, character Spiritual Strong Core Values and Beliefs. Meaning and purpose in life. Family Part of unit that is safe, loving supportive Resilience= Physical + Mental Adapted from WHO To maximize health, we must focus on a total assessment package
COMPREHENSIVE SOLDIER & FAMILY FITNESS BUILDING RESILIENCEENHANCING PERFORMANCE Has the GAT been validated? Soldiers who completed suicide, who tested positive for illicit drug use, and who committed violent crimes were significantly less resilient or psychologically healthy than Soldiers who did not engage in these activities. Officers who were promoted ahead of peers are more emotionally and socially healthy than Officers not promoted early. Officers selected for command are more emotionally and socially healthy than Officers not selected for command. Together these reports showed that resilience and psychological health are linked to important behavioral outcomes. Broad Program Analysis, Technical Reports #1 & #2

FOUO 6 What is the RealAge Test®? A scientific, but simple to take test that quantifies the impact of your lifestyle behaviors, family history, medical conditions & social connections into a unique single calculation of your body’s health Real Age Founded by Dr. Michael Roizen, Dr Keith Roach, Dr Mehmet Oz of the Cleveland Clinic 29 million people have taken the RealAge Test 4 billion+ health facts in our database 4 million active RealAge members 1 billion annual engagement e-mails sent Incorporates Activity, Sleep, and Nutrition into broader test for maximum impact and maximum understanding and training approaches while keeping it fun, engaging and useful for reporting to senior leaders on health of the force and healthcare costs predictions RealAge + GAT The Universal Health Assessmen (Feb 2013 Launch)
FOUO 7 Real Age Test 500 studies reviewed to create the current test Patented algorithm based on CDC and census mortality data, with weighting that eliminates double counting of factors From the most reputable health journals, including: New England Journal of Medicine Annals of Internal Medicine JAMA Lancet British Medical Journal Backed by hard medicine and science
FOUO 8 Process, Methodology & Science The RealAge Test gauges the body's physical age, not its calendar age by looking at many different factors that impact mortality. The most powerful, not surprisingly, are smoking, blood pressure, and blood cholesterol, but many other factors also affect overall mortality, including diet (especially fat intake) and physical activity. The medical and scientific team that created the original RealAge Test during the 1990s reviewed thousands of studies to eventually settled on about 65 factors that affected RealAge. This expert team was led by Michael Roizen, MD and current Chief Wellness Officer at the Cleveland Clinic and current Chief Medical Officer Dr. Keith Roach Working with a mathematician at the University of Chicago, the team developed and patented an algorithm that allows large numbers of risk factors to be considered together as a group, and to take into account the interactions between risk factors and the tendency of behaviors to co-vary. In 2011 the team completed a substantial update of the medical, scientific, mathematical and technological components of the RealAge Test which took more than 2 years start to finish. The scientific research, which lasted almost exactly a year, identified 556 new trials as primary and secondary sources for the RealAge Test. Based on this data, the team removed some original factors, reweighted others, and added several new ones that have only recently been proven to have an independent effect on overall mortality and thus on RealAge (for example, having health insurance).
FOUO 9 Methodology & Science The requirements for altering or adding a new factor to the RealAge Test are quite stringent. The foundation study must reflect major research and be published in a peer-reviewed scientific or medical journal, such as The New England Journal of Medicine, Annals of Internal Medicine, or the Journal of the America Medical Association. At least three confirmatory studies must have been published in similar journals. The key study must pass a critical test: Has its results changed the way medicine is prescribed or practiced? In addition, each study is assigned a quality score based on its methodological strength, so that a large, well-designed, multicenter, placebo-controlled trial has greater weight in calculating RealAge than a study that shows only an epidemiologic association. The algorithm to calculate RealAge has also been improved, mainly by looking individually at a risk factor’s effect on cardiovascular, cancer, accident, and all other causes of mortality, so that it is easier to adjust for the tendency of behaviors to co- vary with one another. Another important part of the new algorithm is the normalization of the studies. RealAge is defined such that the hypothetical “average” person has a RealAge exactly equal to the person's chronologic age. To make that work correctly, the results from the scientific studies have to be normalized against a standard population (almost always the US population).
FOUO 10 Methodology & Science This requires use of data from the Census Bureau, the Centers for Disease Control, or the Department of Vital Statistics. As the population changes, the normalization has to be changed as well. The company and it’s medical team does quarterly reviews and updates of the RealAge test, reviewing the medical literature and maintaining the accuracy of the population means (for example, renormalizing both weight and diabetes prevalence has to be done continuously). At the same time, with over 29 million people having taken the test, we often can see how the population is changing even before other data is published. Also, the new technology behind the RealAge Test now makes updating the test much faster—it can be done within a few days of an important study being released.
FOUO 11 “Risk” Age components for younger populations Evaluates mortality risk for adults as separate test or combined with traditional risk factors as part of RealAge test Also capable of evaluating morbidity (serious injury and all injury risk) as a stand-alone product
FOUO 12 RiskAge factors Driving – Alcohol – Cannabis – Driving speed – Cell phone use – Texting – Car size – Miles driven – Seat belts – Front airbags – Side airbags – Electronic stability control – Prescription drugs/sedatives Motorcycles Helmet effect Bicycles, skateboards, scooters Looks at experience, equipment, type of riding Recreational sports Football, others (high school, college, pro data) Horseback riding Helmets, experience Auto racing Boating accidents Firearm accidents (civilian data) Skiing, snowboarding Private (general) air travel Skydiving, bungee jumping

FOUO 21 Results: Of 960 employees, 388 (40%) consented to participate; of these, 345 (89%) completed the baseline health survey. After 6 months, 70% of the 345 participants had opened 50% or more of the daily emails. In addition, 75% of participants continued to open at least one email a week through week 26 of the study. Email opening rates did not vary by gender, age, income, education, ethnicity, or baseline health behavior. Conclusions: The rate of enrollment and sustained participation document the feasibility, broad reach, employee acceptance, and potential value of using electronic communications for health promotion in the workplace.
