VAIL —The Vail Living Well Summit founders, John and Jamie Stone, announced NBC News’ “Today Show” personality Natalie Morales will emcee the 2013 Vail Living Well Summit. The announcement of Morales’ role adds to the already prolific lineup of nationally and internationally renowned thought leaders, researchers, doctors and pro athletes in the fields of health and well-being scheduled to present at the three-day summit taking place September 19-21 in Vail.
Morales describes herself as someone who is passionate about a healthy lifestyle in both her personal and professional life.
“I feel very strongly about health and well-being in America,” said Morales. “We work too hard, and have one of the highest obesity rates in the world; we don’t do enough to take care of ourselves. Too often we are looking for a quick fix, but the key to living well is a lifestyle dedicated to good health and nutrition.”
Before joining the Today Show, Morales was an anchor and correspondent for MSNBC from 2002 to 2006 where she covered a number of major news stories including the 2004 Presidential Election, 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens and the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster. Outside of work, Morales is an avid runner, having competed in five marathons and numerous triathlons. In 2010, she was featured on the cover of Triathlete Magazine.
The Vail Living Well Summit brings together top level doctors, researchers and athletes, along with health conscious individuals and influencers to connect, learn, share and have fun in Vail. The event uses evidence-based interactive and experiential small group programming for maximum takeaway for both attendees and presenters. Topics include fitness, nutrition, cognitive and emotional well-being, heart health, preventive medicine, longevity and stress, sleep health and cutting edge breakthroughs.
