Partnership for health
LEADING local news channel GMA News TV has teamed up with the Department of Health (DOH) to bring two new weekend programs to be bannered by Kapuso stars Max Collins, Pancho Magno, and Rocco Nacino.
First to air yesterday was “Healthy Ever After,” a talk and lifestyle program on family health hosted by newlyweds Pancho and Max.
For its pilot episode, “Healthy Ever After” tackled family planning and its importance to the Filipino family. Meanwhile, Rocco will host “The Healthy Juan,” a health talk show about degenerative diseases airing every Sunday at 8 p.m. beginning today. A nursing graduate himself, Rocco will talk about mental health, depression, suicide, healthy aging, and organ donation. He will be joined by resource persons who will discuss the importance of having a mindset that disability should not be a hindrance to living a normal life.
For his first episode, Rocco will sit down with those suffering from depression. Who would have thought that model, singer, actress, and social media influencer Solenn Heussaff also experienced depression?
Rocco also visits the family of a teenager who committed suicide because of depression. What led to the young woman to take her life?
“Healthy Ever After” is directed by King Mark Baco while “The Healthy Juan” is directed by Adolf Alix, Jr.
Catch “Healthy Ever After” every Saturday at 5:30 p.m. and “The Healthy Juan” every Sunday at 8 p.m. on GMA News TV.
