Re the March 19 story HealthCorps helps high schoolers learn healthy lifestyle tips: Dr. Mehmet Oz, who is the chairman and founder, and I are grateful for your in-depth coverage of our program.
We are thrilled that more people will learn about the fantastic work our coordinators are doing in the nation’s high-need high schools.
Tibor and Sheila Hollo, generous philanthropists, have funded the HealthCorps program (and many other great causes) in Florida for five years.
Because of them we have been in Hialeah High School since 2009 and Booker T. Washington High School since 2011. In addition , through the Tibor and Sheila Hollo Charitable Foundation, we were able to have a coordinator in Coral Park High School from 2009 to 2011.
HealthCorps would not exist in Florida without the Hollos’ support, and I thank them for their contributions to HealthCorps and the community.
