Topics of Discussion

Usana pours a lot of time and energy offering their reps world class training during International Convention. Phil Kirk one of Usana's top leaders once remarked that Usana was " a self improvement course disguised as a nutritional supplement company". USANA Health Sciences is a research based manufacturer that spends millions of dollars annually to improve products made for human consumption partnering with the Linus Pauling Institute, TOSH and even the U.S. Olympic Team. Realizing that the heart and spirit need to be addressed as well as the intellect, enjoy this sampling of  some of what is being offered on the Training Stages as part of the  Convention package to attendees:
How Women Ignite Prosperity In  Business
Hosting Health & Wellness Seminars with Carmen Marshall
Building A Solid Foundation
Setting Up Your Business Online
Digestion & Detox- Fact or Fiction
Healthy Living Tips from Sanoviv
Building Your Business with the Everyday Athlete with Gold Medalist Jennifer Azzi
Branding Yourself with Jen Groover
Generation Connected with Ryan Dorsey
Revitalizing Skin with Sense with Amy Chalmers
Wow! What a menu and that's not all.

Health Corps vs Child Obesity Partnering with Lisa and Dr. Oz 

One of the most exciting and in my mind critical partnerships that have emerged this year is the partnership between Usana and Lisa and Dr. Oz for their teen obesity project Health Corps. The scope an ambition of this program is vast and the reasons why are voiced below by founder Dr. Oz and Dave Wentz CEO of Usana Health Sciences.

"Consider that approximately 12.5 million American children and adolescents, ages 2 to 19 years, are obese," Dr. Oz said. "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."


"One of the reasons we chose to donate to HealthCorps is because we share such similar values," said Dave Wentz, USANA's chief executive officer. "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 “Coordinators” carry out unique in-school and community programming targeting high-need populations. Coordinatorsare recent college graduates who defer entry into medical school or graduate health programs to serve a two-year full time assignment at a designated public high school.
  • Using peer-mentoring to deliver an experiential curriculum in nutrition,fitness and mental strength, Coordinators give teens purpose, help develop human character and inspire an interest in health and culinary arts careers.
  • Children's Hunger Run 5K -  Raise Funds While Running Around Town

  1. Hi There, I just spent a little time reading through your posts, which I found entirely by mistake whilst researching one of my projects. Please continue to write more because it’s unusual that someone has something interesting to say about this. Will be waiting for more!
