Rally Health, Inc. has named Melvin Gordon, San Diego Chargers running back, and Jarvis Landry, Miami Dolphins wide receiver, as the company’s newest Health Ambassadors. Gordon and Landry will join Rally Health’s first Health Ambassador, actor and comedian Kevin Hart, in a nationwide campaign to inspire people to take a more active role in managing their health and health care needs.
“As professional athletes, Melvin and Jarvis know the importance of taking great care of their health. They also know firsthand the importance of being informed consumers and finding the right resources to take care of their bodies and continue performing at the highest levels,” said Rally Health Founder and CEO Grant Verstandig. “We look forward to seeing our newest Health Ambassadors sharing their experiences and encouraging people to find the power in taking control of their health.”
Rally Health’s digital health platform Rally®, available to individuals through their employer or health plan, offers online and mobile solutions that help people manage key aspects of their health and health care. Rally EngageSM is a wellness tool that helps people track their health goals and incentivizes healthy behaviors with rewards; Rally ChoiceSM enables people to shop for and enroll in health insurance benefits; and Rally ConnectSM is a doctor and pricing search solution that provides quality ratings and cost information based on the individual’s health plan.
“I really love Rally’s mission to put health in the hands of the individual, and look forward to letting my fans know that resources are available to help them to achieve their best health and, when they need it, to navigate the health care system,” said Gordon.
“At the end of the day, what’s more important than our health? Rally is making it cool and super easy for people to get healthy, and to make smarter decisions about their own and their family’s health care. There’s nothing more important,” said Landry.
Rally Health’s Health Ambassador Program works with celebrities and athletes to inspire people everywhere to adopt healthier lifestyles and become more informed health care consumers. Gordon and Landry will support Rally Health’s outreach efforts through their participation in activities ranging from public appearances at Rally HealthFest events (produced by Rally HealthSM) to creating content such as health-focused videos.
