Why I’m Pumped to Join the Steward Health Care Team
I’m excited to share some personal news with you all. This month, I will be joining theSteward Health Care team – and begin traveling the country – as Steward’s Community Wellness Ambassador.
In my travels, I’ll be hosting soccer clinics for kids, sharing my passion for leading an active and healthy lifestyle, and visiting with patients and their families at Steward hospitals. It’s part of my mission to help inspire women and girls, as well as the broader public, to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.
If you haven’t heard of Steward Health Care before, they are an innovative, physician-led company that has quickly grown to become one of the country’s largest hospital operators – with hospitals in nine states including in major cities like Boston, Phoenix, Houston, San Antonio, and Salt Lake City. And here’s why I love what they’re doing: Steward is at the forefront of transforming America’s health care system by focusing on keeping people healthy in the communities where they live, and prioritizing preventative care and behavioral health – not on filling hospital beds.
I have had the great privilege of playing soccer for most of my life, and it was thanks to my commitment to these same approaches: preventive care, maintaining a healthy diet, and focusing on mental and physical wellness. (And of course it was also thanks to some unbelievable teammates, coaches, family members, and fans along the way!)
We will have more news to share in the coming weeks and months – especially as we plan out our stops for Steward across the country. I hope you’ll follow my journey, and come out and say hello when we’re in town.
