Overview

Sleep, activity and nutrition (SAN) are critical for achieving optimal physical, mental, and emotional health and wellbeing. They are integral in maximizing Soldier performance and are the cornerstones of the U.S. Army Office of the Surgeon General’s (OTSG) Performance Triad (P3) Campaign. P3 integrates the best available SAN sports science to improve squad overmatch and Soldier performance in tactical environments. It includes messaging, curriculum and training, policy development, technology, leader development, and changes within the built installation environment to make the healthy choice the easy choice. P3 strives to improve and sustain healthy SAN knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, and associated outcomes among Soldiers and Army beneficiaries.
