SAN FRANCISCO & WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Digital health company Rally Health, Inc., announced that E! News co-host, host of Sirius XM’s Conversations with Maria Menounos and New York Times Best Selling author Maria Menounos is its newest Rally® Health Ambassador.
Menounos will help Rally HealthSM and the company’s other Health Ambassadors – actor and comedian Kevin Hart and Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon – spread the word to people everywhere about the benefits of becoming a more informed health care consumer and how making small, simple lifestyle changes can help improve their overall health.
“As many people know, I’ve been very open about my experiences with health and health care, beginning years ago with my own weight-loss journey and more recently with my mother’s health struggle. Now more than ever, I want to help people navigate their own health journeys. Collaborating with Rally as its newest Health Ambassador gives me an incredible platform to do this, to reach tens of thousands of people with encouragement to help them improve and maintain their health,” said Menounos.
“Maria’s effervescent personality and willingness to share her personal health experiences make her an outstanding Health Ambassador for Rally,” said David Ko, Rally Health president and COO. “We’re excited to have her on board to share Rally’s message that better health is within everyone’s grasp, and that Rally is here to help.”
As part of her partnership with Rally, Menounos will join Hart and Gordon in co-hosting a series of Rally HealthFests in cities across the United States. The HealthFests, free and open to the public, promote healthy living through fun and engaging activities that demonstrate Rally’s four pillars of health: MOVE, EAT, CARE, FEEL. People of all ages come out to participate in family-friendly activities such as group exercise classes, spin classes and brain games.
Last summer, Menounos and Hart co-hosted the New York City Rally HealthFest where they energized more than 10,000 New Yorkers to aim for healthier lives. On Saturday, March 25, Menounos will join her Co-Health Ambassadors Hart and Gordon at the San Francisco Rally HealthFest in Justin Herman Plaza.
Rally Health’s Health Ambassador Program works with celebrities and athletes to inspire people to adopt healthier lifestyles and become more informed health care consumers. In addition to her appearances at Rally HealthFest events (produced by Rally Health), Menounos will support the company’s outreach efforts with other initiatives such as hosting and producing health-focused consumer videos.
