Teaming Up for Health

The Physicians Committee

Teaming up for health

Our exciting new initiative, Teaming Up 4 Health, brings together like-minded people who are interested in raising public awareness on the benefits of eating a healthful diet. Small changes—like eliminating processed meat or increasing fiber intake—made over time add up to lifesaving results.


  • Celebrities help reform federal nutrition policies by signing letters asking Congress to improve school lunches. Healthy children mean higher test scores, healthy adults, and a longer life!
  • Celebrities promote the New 4 Food Groups—an innovative proposal for a federal nutrition policy that puts a new priority on promoting fruits, vegetables, legumes, and grains—by participating in Capitol Hill briefings.
  • Celebrities participate in PSA development to advocate for healthier options in school cafeterias.
  • Celebrities participate in fundraising efforts, including galas and smaller exclusive parties.
  • Celebrities share recipes and encouragement with individuals who are shifting to healthier eating habits
