Dr. Oz and USANA

April 9, 2012

USANA Health Sciences recently joined forces with HealthCorps, the nonprofit organization co-founded by heart surgeon and Emmy Award-winning talk show host Dr. Mehmet Oz and his wife, Lisa, to combat one of the most serious health issues facing the United States today: childhood obesity.

The nutritional company committed to further HealthCorps’ goals of educating children about nutrition and fitness. “One of the reasons we chose to donate to HealthCorps is because we share such similar values,” said USANA CEO Dave Wentz. “Our common mission is to create a healthier world for future generations, while helping people make better decisions today. It’s impressive to see how HealthCorps is impacting people’s lives.”

HealthCorps is dedicated to fighting childhood obesity by educating students, challenging teens to create healthier environments and advocating for healthy public policy. “Approximately 12.5 million American children and adolescents, ages 2 to 19 years, are obese,” said Dr. Oz. “In New York State alone, obesity among children and adolescents has tripled over the last three decades. This is among the many issues that HealthCorps is committed to address, and with USANA’s generosity, we are able to do much more with our programs.”

The two organizations kicked off their collaboration on Feb. 23 with a “Teen Battle Chef” cooking competition at Columbia University where high school students prepared healthy dishes for a panel of judges that included celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito, Dr. Oz, Lisa Oz, Dave Wentz and USANA Founder Dr. Myron Wentz. A Health and Happiness Summit wellness event hosted by Dr. Oz was held on Feb. 25 at Radio City Music Hall. Click here to read the full press release.
