Former First Lady Michelle Obama will be visiting America's Finest City today (Sept. 19). She is appearing as a part of a three-day event to help promote health and wellness. 

"The Bold Mindbody" conference will be held at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront located downtown. 

Experts in the field of wellness and fitness will speak at the convention. Classes will include yoga, cardio, and dance according to NBC 7.

Billy Jean King and Mindbody CEO, Rick Strollmeyer will be the keynote speakers. 

During her time in the White House, Michelle Obama headed the "Let's Move" campaign to bring awareness to childhood obesity. 

Obama will also begin her book tour later this year to promote "Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama" a memoir chronicling "the experiences that have shaped her -- from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world's most famous address."
