HealthCorps - Education the Student Body

Dottie Boreyko
BK & Dr. Mehmet Oz

Dr. Oz recently stopped by the Vemma Home Office to talk about HealthCorps and thank Vemma and our Affiliates for their generous support. Check out what he had to say.

Co-founded by heart surgeon and Emmy Award-winning talk show host Dr. Mehmet Oz and his wife Lisa Oz, HealthCorps serves as a unique research laboratory to explore the complex, underlying causes of the obesity crisis and discover and communicate solutions.

The organization focuses on three main priorities:

  1. Educating Students – HealthCorps' national peer-mentoring program spans 66 high schools in 13 states, with a goal to have a presence in 100 schools in all 50 states by 2015.
  2. Creating a Fit Town – In communities across the country, HealthCorps is challenging teens to reach beyond the school yard to help other students, their families and their communities experience wellness through service.
  3. Advocacy – HealthCorps advocates for healthy public policies across all levels of government, with a goal to put health and physical education back into the core curriculum of the American education system.

Continue our legacy of support for HealthCorps!
