HealthCorps educates American youth about the workings and wonders of their bodies through in/after school seminars on diet, nutrition and exercise. HealthCorps empowers children to become educated consumers and make shifts in behavior that can be measured by changes in rates of obesity and physical fitness as well as mental resilience and self-esteem.
HealthCorp was founded by Dr. Mehmet Oz, and was born out of a committment to preventative and holistic health and a concern for the well-being of American children and youth.Utibe R. Essien is RKA's site coordinator for HealthCorps.Learn more about HealthCorps:www.healthcorps.org
