Dr. Veritas Luna, the chancellor for education of CCA Manila and ASHA, was named by the Nutritionist-Dietitians’ Association of the Philippines (NDAP) as one of the country’s Ten Outstanding Nutritionists-Dietitians of the Philippines.

 

Dr. Luna has steered one of the country’s first culinary schools to greater heights as its managing director from 2008 to 2012. As chancellor, she introduced landmark programs such as the BS in Culinary Management.

 

A PhD Nutrition graduate, she previously taught in the University of the Philippines and also held administrative posts at the university’s College of Home Economics, including being the chairperson of the Department of Food Science and Nutrition.

“I feel very honored, but at the same time I find it a very humbling experience because I was being awarded with the likes of Corazon Dayro-Ong who founded CDO,” said Dr. Luna, who received the award on February 17 at the Manila Hotel. “They saw that my work, professional involvements, projects and advocacies have contributed to the field in general and to the upliftment of the profession.”

 

In other news, ASHA’s dean, Angie Blanco, and CCA school operations manager, Elizabeth Morales, passed the written assessment as Certified Hospitality Educator by the American Hotel and Lodging Education Institute last December in a workshop held at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Both schools provide faculty development programs that allow members of the management and faculty to perform well in their work posts and professional fields.
