About Parangal sa mga Kwentong Kalusugan Pangkalahatan
Parangal sa mga Kuwentong Kalusugan Pangkalahatan Health Media Awards aims to recognize Manila and province-based journalists from mainstream and non-traditional media for excellent stories that tell of ordinary folk’s strides in making a health-conscious community and healthy family.  A special prize for bloggers will also be given. “By telling their stories, of their struggles and little successes in life, our friends in the media will be powerful instruments in getting the message across.  Needless to say, we should have healthy citizens to be able to build empowered communities,” said DOH Assistant Secretary Dr. Eric Tayag.

Probe Media Foundation is cooperating with DOH’s National Center for Health Promotion in the implementation of the program.  Deadline for entries is August 31, 2013.  For the application form and further inquiries, visit (PR)
