himsog1BARAS, Palo, Leyte -- The Harmonized Initiatives of Media for the Spread of Good Nutrition in Region 8 (HIMSoG-8), the media-group partner of National Nutrition Council Region 8 (NNC-8 ), for the second time in-a-row has been cited as "Most Active Nutrition Organization" by the government's nutrition arm.

This turned out certain during a Regional Nutrition Awarding Ceremony when HIMSoG-8 President and DYOG-Calbayog Manager Antonio C. Pueblos stood in the limelight to receive a second plaque of Appreciation from NNC-8 Regional Nutrition Program Coordinator Dr. Catalino P. Dotollo on December 6, 2017 at the Oriental Hotel, here.

The plaque reads: for extending exceptional efforts, time, services and resources to scale up nutrition interventions and accelerate the rehabilitation and improvement of the nutritional status in different areas of the region through effective and optimum utilization of airtime, newspaper space and other communication  support in promotion of good nutrition--a vital contribution  in ensuring the nutritional  well-being of the people in Eastern Visayas.

The Eastern Visayas Association of Barangay Nutrition Scholars (EVA-BNS) headed by its President Lydia C. Nunez likewise received the same distinction, and for the second time as well. (JCG)
