The Palawan province is gearing up for the first Provincial Nutrition Summit that is expected to be attended by around 400 Barangay Environment, Agriculture and Nutrition Scholars (BEANS) on July 19.

The activity will be spearheaded by Palawan Capitol, through its Provincial Nutrition Office (PNO).

Provincial Nutrition Action Officer (PNAO) Rachel Paladan said that leaders of the province are expected to grace the event to be led by Governor Jose Chavez Alvarez.

“Tampok din ang talakayan patungkol sa nutrition program updates, Palawan nutrition status at iba pa. Ito ay pangungunahan ng ilan sa mga naanyayahang tagapagsalita mula sa Kamaynilaan na kinabibilangan nina Regional Nutrition Program Coordinator Carina Santiago ng National Nutrition Council- MIMAROPA at G. Cecilio Agaton na isang international consultant,” the province said.

“Bahagi rin ng programa ang seremonya ng pagbibigay parangal para sa mga indibidwal at lokal na pamahalaan na nagpamalas ng angking galing sa pagpapatupad ng programa sa nutrisyon,” it added.

The awards to be given include Most Outstanding Barangay Nutrition Committee, Outstanding Barangay Nutrition Scholars, Outstanding Punong Barangay and Green Banner Award.

“Bukod pa rito ay kikilalanin din ang limang munisipyo na nakapagtala ng pinakamababang Malnutrition Prevalence Rate (MPR) sa Palawan,” said the province.
