Senior Leader Sustainment


The SLS mission is to provide Senior Leaders with a highly personal and customized medical assessment and educational environment to enhance their understanding of the complex interplay between leadership, health, fitness, and readiness.


Optimal leadership performance and disease risk mitigation will be achieved by integrating an approach where senior leaders receive an extensive clinical diagnostic evaluation, aggregate risk factor analysis, and prevention strategies, led by experienced, credentialed professionals.
