Cedars-Sinai, Rams Partner to Promote Health and Wellness


The Los Angeles Rams are shown practicing at their training facility in Irvine. Cedars-Sinai is the official health partner of the Rams.

Cedars-Sinai is playing an important role in the return of the Los Angeles Rams, partnering with the storied NFL team to promote health and wellness for children and families across the region.

With the football season getting underway, the two organizations are preparing to roll out community outreach programs that highlight the importance of exercise, healthy eating, preventive healthcare and health education.

As the official health partner of the Los Angeles Rams, Cedars-Sinai will team up with the local sports franchise to host local events for Play 60, the NFL's national campaign to encourage kids to be active for at least 60 minutes a day.

"The Rams have come home, and we're very excited to join with them to promote healthier living for families throughout Los Angeles," said Thomas M. Priselac, president and CEO of Cedars-Sinai. "This is a true partnership of two organizations that are committed to working together to improve the health of communities."

As a Rams homecoming partner, Cedars-Sinai will have signage prominently displayed during home games at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and at the Rams' training camp in Irvine (for an inside look at training camp, you can watch this season of HBO's popular sports reality series Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Los Angeles Rams). Cedars-Sinai also ran a full-page ad in USA Today to promote the partnership with the Rams.

On game days, Cedars-Sinai will serve as a presenting sponsor of the Kids Zone at all Rams home games, a fun and interactive play area that will be open during pregame just outside the Coliseum in the Rams Fan Fest area.

Through the partnership, Cedars-Sinai employees will be eligible to win tickets for each of the Rams' seven regular season home games at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum. About 100 tickets will be distributed for each game through a raffle.

More internal events and Rams promotions are being planned as well. Stay tuned for more details as the regular season approaches.

The preseason kicked off Saturday, Aug. 13, when the Rams hosted their first game in Los Angeles in 22 years. The first regular season home game is Sunday, Sept. 18.
