Helping restore warfighters to optimal health and wellness

Many Special Operations Forces (SOF) members have significant health problems and other issues associated with their brave service as warfighters. Task Force Dagger’s Health Initiative Program provides education and access to and awareness of personalized functional medicine approaches that deliver lifestyle, integrative, and nutritional interventions that address the root causes of dysfunction for these community members.

The goal of the program is to provide a framework for a person-oriented approach to wellness that restores warfighters to optimal health.

The Heath Initiative Program is designed to work with all existing Department of Defense and Veteran’s Affairs resources. Through strategic collaborations and partnerships, Task Force Dagger has created a network of external organizations and institutes that offer alternative wellness solutions for SOF service members, veterans, and their families.
