Welfare and Wellness Solutions Award Submission - Futurecare Inc


Future Care is an international medical management, cost containment service, and telemedical service provider exclusively to the maritime industry, serving shipowners and P&I Clubs in fulfilling the medical needs of seafarers, aboard ship and on land. The Company was founded in 1998 by CEO and President Christina DeSimone, who brought her unique brand of medical case management for land-based employees directly to shipowners and ship managers, to better manage the medical care of their crews. Future Care has grown rapidly since then, filling a need in the maritime community for expert management of seafarers’ medical treatment and services around the globe.

New Comer of the Year Award Submission - WELLATSEA


In the last year and a half, the WellAtSea program has reached approximately 3,640 seafarers, with 70 live orientation sessions amongst 1,090 crew. Indications of our 7-month pilot program showed a decrease of secondary outcomes in smoking, hypertension, and the overweight / obese  population.

Newcomer of the Year Award Submission - Nordic Medical Clinic


The Nordic Medical Clinic wants to challenge the maritime industry and the idea is also to establish a 'pre-employment medical' clinic. 'Pre-employment medical' should not only be a 'FIT or UNFIT' system. There should be something in between – which is the 'care' for the seafarers. The Nordic Medical Clinic's commitment is to provide health and wellness training - a pro-active approach on health care

Welfare and Corporate Social Responsibility Award - OSM-AD Foundation


The OSM-AD Foundation is a non-profit organization that operates to help uplift indigent communities through education and disaster response programs.

An early achiever, Adonis is proudly Filipino. From being the captain of the Crew of Cadets and class president, to being a corporate executive and social reformer.
