HealthCorps Making Students Strong

OMRON Foundation has supported the mission of Healthcorps for over 10 years. HealthCorps, founded by Dr. Mehmet Oz, in 2003 to educate young people about mental and physical wellness, has programs which equip youth with the tools and knowledge to become resilient in mind and body for their long-term success and that of their community. HealthCorps focuses on prevention with the idea that every child deserves a life free of chronic diseases like diabetes, obesity, hypertension, cardiac mortality, respiratory issues, cancer and more. Further, addiction, low self-esteem, depression and mental health problems rooted in societal disruptions, are preventable. Healthcorps evolves effective curriculum to meet the relevant challenges faced by the next generation and with this help, HealthCorps students take charge of their lives and carry the baton of wellness to their family and friends. OMRON Foundation is proud to support their efforts to make a difference in the lives of so many.

Disease Treatment and Research

Omron Foundation has donated to many charities and foundations that help find cures to childhood diseases and help provide treatment and support for families seeking treatment.
