To promote a healthy lifestyle through proper diet and physical fitness activities, the National Conciliation and Mediation Board launched its Health and Wellness Program on June 13, 2022 via Zoom. The activity was participated in by Board officials and all its regional branches and staff.

A thanksgiving mass was initially held led by Fr. Virgilio Ojoy and the morning session was culminated with a Healthy Diet and Weight Management lecture by Dr. Ian Kenneth Bermero. In the afternoon, Deputy Executive Director Maria Cristina Mangaliman delivered an overview of the NCMB Health and Wellness Program.

Chief Administrative Officer Chief Rose-Maria Mamaoag presented the challenge mechanics for the Board’s nationwide version of the Biggest Loser Weight Loss Challenge. All regional offices were instructed to procure a digital scale with Body Composition Monitor. This scale will be used to track the weight loss progress of employees throughout the course of the competition.

Executive Director Maria Teresita Lacsamana-Cancio signed the NCMB Health and Wellness Program, which aims to monitor and enhance the health and well-being of NCMB employees.
