  • 173rd FW First in ANG to Join Groundbreaking Health Promotion Study

    The 173rd Fighter Wing is employing a promising approach to help members assess their habits and behaviors and make needed changes. Previous studies have shown that even high achieving Airman can wrestle with problems that they hide from others and are reluctant to seek help for--such as drinking too much, abuse from a partner, depression, and even suicidal thoughts. One way to help is to prevent these problems from developing in the first place. That’s the purpose of NORTH STAR, a program utilized by the active duty Air Force.
