CHAMP carries out and translates research to improve service member performance in the field and returning to duty. CHAMP aims to be DoD’s best resource for evidence-based information on human performance optimization (HPO) to improve the performance and resilience of our service members and their families.
Dear Service Members, Partners, Collaborators, Stakeholders, and Friends:
Welcome to the website for Consortium for Health and Military Performance (CHAMP). CHAMP is dedicated to the health and performance of Service Members, their families, retirees, and all DoD personnel. We focus on holistic approaches to optimize Warfighter mission and family readiness through leadership, community engagement, education, and translation of human performance research. Our goals are to optimize the performance of individual Service Members and their units, and promote Total Force Fitness (TFF) as the overarching framework. Please click here to see our 2022 Annual Report, which demonstrates the range and value of our programs, services, and initiatives, and visit our Human Performance Resources by CHAMP and Operation Supplement Safety websites to see some of our many educational materials.
