The Department of Science and Technology Regional Office No. IX  together with the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI) is conducting a one-day Media Forum for Nutrition Communication Network (NUTRICOMNET) in Zamboanga Peninsula.

The 2013 NUTRICOMNET-IX Media Forum is scheduled on June 20 at the Marcian Garden Hotel in this city.

FNRI is partnering with San Miguel Purefoods Company (SMPC) to tackle important issues such as protein-energy, micro deficiencies and meat safety, and to fight malnutrition with accurate data, correct information, and innovative technologies in five (5) major cities in the country, one of which is Zamboanga City.

This year’s forum promises to be both informative and exciting considering the relevant issues to be addressed as it aims to provide local media practitioners and information officers with data and information on the recent food and nutrition trends in the country. Presentations in the forum include the nutrition situation: protein energy malnutrition (PEM) and micronutrient deficiencies, consequences of PEM and micronutrient deficiencies, Philippine food fortification program and meat safety.

Information officers, health and nutrition specialists of various government agencies, and faculty members of state colleges and universities involved in food, nutrition and health promotion and media practitioners will gather to share and relate experiences in promoting food and nutrition information in the region.

The coordination of DOST with the various media both in government and private entities, being partners in food and nutrition promotion, will greatly help in sustaining combined efforts in fighting malnutrition in the country.

NUTRICOMNET is a network of provincial and regional media practioners as well as information officers of various agencies and institutions involved in food, nutrition and health promotion. It was established to create a favorable interactive promotion program between the FNRI-DOST and the local media in the region. It also aims to provide and update the public about the latest news on nutrition in the country. (DOST IX PRESS RELEASE)
