HealthCorps® is a proactive health movement founded by heart surgeon and nationally syndicated talk show host, Dr. Mehmet Oz, is fighting the obesity and mental resilience crises by getting American students and communities across the country to become agents of change and take charge of their health.
Like a Peace Corps for Health, HealthCorps engages recent college graduates to participate in public service through a two-year assignment at a designated public high school. The health educational and mentoring program is up and running in 50 high schools in nine states. This year the program will impact 25,000 students and 50,000 community members.
