HealthCorps (TAX ID# 26-1269358) is a non-profit founded by Dr. Mehmet Oz and his wife, Lisa, which implements an innovative in-school model inspiring teens to make healthier choices for themselves and their families. This 2014-2015 academic year, there are HealthCorps programs in 60 schools in 13 states and the District of Columbia. We have impacted 233,100 students and 446,200 friends and families through our work.

The Academy for Conservation and the Environment partners with HealthCorps to host an annual in-school health fair. The 2015 health fair will be held on Thursday, March 26th from 9:00am – 1:15pm at South Shore High School in Brooklyn, NY. This year’s theme is “Slam into Health!” And they’re looking forward to a day of healthful and educational fun. This event aims to educate and empower high school students about their health.

The goals of the Health Fair event are to:

•Develop high school student leaders to plan and manage event

•Promote healthier behaviors to students, staff and families

• Provide resources and health services available through local organizations

They would like to invite you to participate by making a product or service donation to make this event a success. This is a wonderful opportunity for your organization to market products and services that encourage the community to access care and adopt healthier behaviors.

They are expecting 500+ attendees including students and staff as well as community members from the Brooklyn area.
