GeneSoc spearheads three-day Community Youth Training Program in Nampicuan, Nueva Ecija #K4Health


  1. Standing firm on its commitment to promoting health-related advocacies, The UPLB Genetics Society (GeneSoc) spearheaded the engagement of Volunteer Youth Leaders for Health (VYLH) -Philippines with the community youth in a pilot project called K4Health Community Youth Training Program last June 7-9 in Nampicuan, Nueva Ecija.

    Rooted to the meaning of K4, "Kabataan Kabalikat ng Komunidad para sa Kalusugan,” the said training program led to the organization and establishment of a community-based VYLH core group in the host local government unit under the direct supervision of the Local Government Unit's (LGU) Health Officer.

    GeneSoc, along with its partners, hopes that the first VYLH – LGU partnership of this kind will be replicated in other locations in the country upon its pilot implementation in Nampicuan. To learn more, visit GENEWS, and the GeneSoc K4Health page
