Here is where you will find information pertaining to health and wellness! We will spotlight relevant information and news from in and around your community as well as feature interviews, healthy recipes, suggestions and personal triumphant stories all written by members of our locally founded organization Survival Instinct – The Network, Inc.
So, who am I? My name is Sylvia -Williams Simmons; I am a proud resident of the Bronx NY and co-founder /President of Survival Instinct The Network (SITNET.) SITNET is a 501c3 organization that promotes cancer awareness, early detection, prevention and healthy living. Some of our activities include …cancer walks, support groups for men, women and children. In addition, through our Community Health & Awareness Days (CHAD), we invite medical professionals into the community to speak on a variety of topics and interests in the health and wellness field. In our 13-year existence, SITNET has made quite an impact in the lives we serve by disseminating the information needed for all to make healthier choices.
Our success story includes the 2010 decision by Congressman Joseph Crowley and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr to name September 12th, and September 13th as Survival Instinct The Network Day here in the Bronx! We invite you and your family to celebrate this day with us next year (details to follow.) Also, to honor my late husband, the co-founder of SITNET, and to commend the services performed though our organization, New York City’s Mayor Bill De’ Blasio signed into law a street thoroughfare which co names Newbold Ave to Jahi Williams-Simmons Way …his legacy continues.
So, with all of that said…. our overall goal is to build a healthier Bronx and beyond.
