Mission Statement

HealthCorps, is building a movement to fight childhood obesity by getting to the underbelly of the crisis and discovering what Americans are really hungry for and why and then proposing a remedy.

  • HealthCorps "Coordinators" carry out unique in-school and community programming targeting high-need populations. Coordinatorsare recent college graduates who defer entry into medical school or graduate health programs to serve a two-year full time assignment at a designated public high school.
  • Using peer-mentoring to deliver an experiential curriculum in nutrition,fitness and mental strength, Coordinators give teens purpose, help develop human character and inspire an interest in health and culinary arts careers.
  • Co-founded by heart surgeon and Emmy Award-winning talk show host Dr. Mehmet Oz and his wife Lisa Oz, HealthCorps also serves as a unique research laboratory to explore the complex, underlying causes of the obesity crisis and discover and communicate solutions.
  • Bringing many initiatives together to activate the students’ mind, body and spirit, HealthCorps is transforming the educational paradigm one school at a time.
