So it comes as no surprise that I became part of one of the fastest emerging organization of media practitioners in Cebu assembled by the National Nutrition Council that would help sustain efforts for nutrition campaigns, advocacy and events.
Malnutrition is one of the effects of poverty that has been putting the country at bay in terms of human and economic advancement.
MEDIA INFORMATION NETWORK FOR NUTRITION AND DEVELOPMENT 7 (MIND 7) has been involved with projects and events that NNC Region 7 has been fighting for these past few years.
Yours truly, was just entrusted the position as Secretary and was blessed enough to land in a national daily via coverage by Ms. Cheryl Baldicantos of Manila Bulletin. As I assume a new responsibility, I promise to do everything in my power to help strengthen the flow of relevant information to the general public.

“The region recognizes the importance of effective information dissemination, and the influence you, members of the local media have in shaping the public’s opinion on food and nutrition.
"Though of different media used to hand-out nutrition information to the public, from radio, television, print and other social media, each of you have done us proud this past year.” NNC 7 Regional Nutrition Program Coordinator, Dr. Parolita A.
