I am Ankita Boral, and have completed my Post Graduation in Dietetics and Nutrition from NSHM College of Management and Technology, Kolkata. I did 2.5 months of internship at FMCH during the lockdown.
I was also given the opportunity to write the experiences of the field officers who have been working in FMCH for years. I felt so amazed when I listened to their stories and experiences, they had working in FMCH. They expressed how FMCH has changed their thoughts and myths around nutrition and taught them about its importance, and how they are now educating families on the importance of nutrition, effects of malnutrition, the importance of breastfeeding, and pregnancy care.
I have learned a lot from FMCH during my experience. Though i have missed the field works and visits still I think whatever FMCH has taught me it will be a lifetime experience.
I wish I could have got more time to work with FMCH and gained more knowledge about community public health.
I am extremely obliged to FMCH for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the organization.
