There are many organizations that help develop healthy, thriving communities while also helping people develop the skills that can help them make their mark in the workforce, and one of those is HealthCorps.

Founded in 2003 by Dr. Mehmet Oz, the heart of HealthCorps is its coordinators, who are college graduates who donate two years of their life to help teach teens the importance of health and wellness. So far, HealthCorps coordinators have helped 2 million high school students across the country.

On The Dr. Oz Show Nov. 28, two HealthCorps alums, Camille McGirt and Ryan Fightmaster, shared their inspiring experiences about how HealthCorps helped them not only develop a healthy lifestyle but find a field that they are passionate about.

McGirt and Fightmaster also shared the four main themes behind HealthCorps curriculum—Healthy Mind, Healthy Eating, Healthy Body, Healthy You—and how they apply them in their daily life.
