SOLANO, NUEVA VIZCAYA----- National Nutrition Council Region 02 will strengthen Local Nutrition Committees’ social media presence to promote nutrition behaviors through one day training on 31 March 2022 at Hotel Carmelita, Tuguegarao City.
Aside from the local media placements of nutrition information in prints, radio, and television through the social and behavior change communication, the National Nutrition Council Region II maintains social media accounts in Facebook and Youtube to maximize nutrition information dissemination. Through these accounts, nutrition information was able to reach greater population and made available even during these trying times of the pandemic were the usual nutrition information dissemination strategies such as seminars, meetings, etc. were not possible.
Several Local Government Units (LGUs) also created their respective Facebook Accounts where they create their own infographics with nutrition information and share NNC Region 02 Facebook Page posts. Currently, NNC Region 02 monitors these Facebook accounts by checking their posts daily.
Orientation Team will be composed of technical experts from PIA Region 02 and private practitioners in the region who can share knowledge and skills in managing FB Pages and creating contents.
The target participants of the training are those local nutrition focal persons that are involved in managing their FB accounts and creating materials for posting. A total of 27 participants, three (3) each from provinces and cities in the region are expected to attend the training. ###JOHN NESTOR L. BALLAD
