About Us

What is MAChO? MAChO stands for Motivating Action through Community Health Outreach. It started out as the Movement Against Childhood Obesity (which is where our little 'h' came from). MAChO is a student-run volunteer program based in the Community Service Office of Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC), committed to empowering youth through the promotion of healthy living. We run free after-school programs focused on nutrition and physiology education, fitness, and personal development. We also offer nutrition education and fitness classes for parents on Saturdays. We collaborate with several mission-aligned and community-based organizations to implement an innovative and holistic program that empowers our youth to adopt healthy lifestyles early on.
