On August 05, 2022, the Mines and Geosciences Bureau Region X, led by its Regional Director, Felizardo A. Gacad, Jr., conducted a Living Well: Hybrid Seminar on Lifestyle and Health among its employees.

The whole-day activity comprised of talks about maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  Speakers from Department of Health (DOH) Region X, Senior Health Program Officers Ms. Karen Kaye A. Conol and Ms. Telesfora Madelo discussed about Health and Lifestyle Skills as well as Good Food for a healthy balanced diet in the first part of the program. In the afternoon, Development Management Officer I of National Nutrition Council, Ms. Lizella Mae L. Bete, gave insights on Healthy Diet and Nutrition.

At the end of the wellness seminar, the Office then launched its very first three-month virtual run/walk race for the employees to enjoy and participate. A finisher’s jersey will be given to those who finished the race and a special token for finishing first.

This innovation from the Finance and Administrative Division is a way to give importance to both mental and physical wellness of the MGBX employees.
