GMA News TV has teamed up with the Department of Health (DOH) to bring two new weekend programs hosted by Max Collins, Pancho Magno, and Rocco Nacino.
First to air on Dec. 8, 5:30 p.m., “Healthy Ever After” is a talk and lifestyle program on family health hosted by newlyweds Pancho and Max. Aside from being an actor, Pancho is a registered nurse. He and Max discuss various topics—from family planning, maternal care, safe motherhood, newborn care packages, breastfeeding, expanded program on immunization, to adolescent health sexuality.
For its pilot episode, “Healthy Ever After” tackles family planning and its importance to the Filipino family. Max and Pancho try to be parents to six children. How will the husband and wife deal with such responsibility?
Two mothers also go on a palengke (wet market) challenge. One woman has six children while the other only has three. For P300, how will the two moms manage to feed their respective families?
Rocco host “The Healthy Juan,” a health talk show about degenerative diseases airing every Sunday at 8 p.m. beginning Dec. 9.
A nursing graduate himself, Rocco will talk about mental health, depression, suicide, healthy aging, and organ donation. At the same time, Rocco will be joined by resource persons who will discuss the importance of having a mindset that disability should not be a hindrance for you to live a normal life.
For his first episode, Rocco tackles depression. He sits down with those who’ve experienced it, including model, singer, actress, and social media influencer Solenn Heussaff.
Rocco also heads to a community health clinic that has a program intended to those battling depression and other mental disorder.
“Healthy Ever After” is directed by King Mark Baco while “The Healthy Juan” is directed by Aaron Papins Mendoza. Both programs will have resource persons from DOH who will help in the discussion of the featured topics.
