On Saturday, September 29th, JIG Media & Mastermind Connect‘s vision of bringing New Yorkers together for the purpose of creating a healthier city was realized. The Healthy NYC Expo on Governors Island powered by Fidelis Care hosted dozens of activities for the entire family, over 50 community partners, live DJ’s and tons of giveaways!
“It is our goal to introduce the love for the outdoors to those children and families who might not have the opportunity to experience it very often”, proclaimed Michael McConnell, Founder of NYC-based Men’s Group, ‘Mastermind Connect’. “Family healthcare is the cornerstone of upward mobility for underserved communities, and I’m honored that our members can play a pivotal role in pushing the envelop forward”.
According to JIG’s COO, Vernon Jones Jr., “Navigating the healthcare landscape in NYC is no easy task. Speaking from personal experience, answers are hard to come by and are definitely not found all in one easy-to-use place. The Healthy NYC Movement is here to change that. Our goal is to galvanize the entire community on a single platform, with one single purpose, which is to equip New Yorkers with the tools necessary to live their best life possible.”
As the 2019-2020 series of events are being solidified, the Healthy NYC platform is poised to become NYC’s go to destination for healthcare information.
