Cebu City – On its 10th year anniversary, the National Nutrition Council Region 7’s media network, the Media Information Network for Nutrition and Development (MIND 7) reiterates its purpose of bringing relevant and up-to-date nutrition information in Central Visayas.
With a decade worth of positive influence on the community’s nutrition perspective, MIND 7 continues to advocate for better health and nutrition behavior with the goal of improving the region’s nutrition situation.
“The National Nutrition Council Region VII is always grateful to all the officers and members of MIND 7 who always go along way with their generous contributions to disseminate relevant and accurate nutrition information to all the Boholanos, Cebuanos, Negrenses and Siquijudnons,” according to the NNC 7 Regional Nutrition Program Coordinator Dr. Parolita A. Mission.
With the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, MIND 7 has set new normal advocacies and strategies to reach more people with its main goal of contributing to the decrease of stunting prevalence in the region.
The association is taking advantage of online platforms which the majority is now using aside from the traditional radio, print, and television promotions and now expanding its membership to the information officers of the different provinces in Central Visayas.
These efforts are set to reach more people to remember the key nutrition messages of addressing stunting and contribute to towards positive change in their eating behavior and caring practices.//NVS
