Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc. (Sun Life) and Johnson & Johnson Philippines, Inc. (J&J) reaffirm their commitment to helping Filipinos achieve a brighter life as they enter a collaboration that promotes financial literacy and health and wellness.

 

 

 

The two stalwarts in their respective fields have agreed to promote financial-medical literacy among their target audience through a series of talks and forums. This kicked off with webinars on mental wellness and prostate cancer awareness for Sun Life employees, followed by a two-part financial planning session for J&J employees.

 

 

 

The program continues onwards with the creation of appropriate awareness tools as well as products and services that will address the financial, medical, and insurance needs of Filipinos.

 

 

 

“Health is wealth, and as cliché as it may sound, there is nothing truer than this because living a healthier life allows one to pursue a brighter future,” says Alex Narciso, President of Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc. “By joining forces with Johnson & Johnson, we earnestly look forward to ushering more Filipinos towards a future that’s brighter, healthier, and more financially secure.”

 

 

 

“Our entry in this valuable collaboration transcends our business and objectives, and it’s truly great and wonderful that we are working together for this shared mission as we deliver life-changing values that aid in promoting a healthier life among Filipinos, starting with our employees,” says Anna Cristina Blaza, Commercial Leader of Johnson & Johnson Philippines.

 

 

 

Present during the occasion were Sun Life’s top executives namely: Alex Narciso, President; Al Quitangon, Chief Distribution Officer; Deo Orpilla, Chief Distribution & Business Development Officer; Lirio Torres, Head of Health & Accident; and May Oruga, Health Affinity Partner. Coming from J&J are: Noel Borlongan, Head of Government Affairs; Anna Cristina Blaza, Commercial Leader; Dr. Lorenz Angeles, Medical Affairs; Johanna Santiago, Market Access; and Dorothy Regmalos, Market Access Admin Assistant. The event was hosted by Francesca Tolentino, Sun Life’s Lead of Affinity.
