JIG Media, owners of the Healthy NYC initiative, announced today that ShopRite, the leading supermarket in NY, has become the title sponsor of the Healthy NYC Expo, Brooklyn Edition.
Developed to create excitement and engagement around the topic of healthcare in New York City, the Healthy NYC Expo presented by ShopRite is set for Saturday November 4th, 2017 from 10am to 4pm at the Brooklyn Sports Club.
JIG’s COO, Vernon Jones Jr. stated, “We are elated to have ShopRite on board as the title sponsor of the Healthy NYC Expo’s Brooklyn edition! Their dedication to the communities they serve is evident and genuine, which aligns very well with our vision.”
Healthy NYC is a citywide initiative, with Brooklyn acting as the launching pad. The organizers have plans to produce one expo in each borough every year, as a way to galvanize community influencers, families, millennials, seniors, caregivers and healthcare professionals, around the idea of improving the overall Population Health of New York City.
In addition to over 30 booths and exhibits covering healthcare, fitness and nutrition, the expo provides attendees with tips and resources to achieve a healthier lifestyle. Event activities include medical screenings, prizes and giveaways, 90’s Hip Hop spin (cycling) class, Lauryn Hill inspired yoga, cooking demonstrations, Zumba, healthcare panel discussions, health insurance options and much more.
Andrew Kent, Executive VP, ShopRite explained, “We are dedicated to the wellbeing of the communities we serve, which is why partnering with JIG Media on the Healthy NYC initiative was such an easy decision.”
Matthew Cofrancesco, Executive Director, Brooklyn Sports Club stated, “We are excited to be part of the Healthy NYC Expo, which will be a great event for the entire community. The Brooklyn Sports Club has been serving Brooklyn residents for many years, and we truly enjoy being able to help improve the health and well-being of our friends and neighbors.”
With an expected attendance of over 1,000 and digital reach of over 50,000, the Healthy NYC platform is poised to become NYC’s go to destination for healthcare information. New Yorkers from every borough and neighborhood are invited to attend each expo.
