Grace is the nutritionist for our new program CREZCO. She was born in Trujillo Peru, and moved to Arequipa when she was 8 years old. There, she studied Human Nutrition at the National University of San Agustín. She did her SERUMS in a rural area where she gained experience working with communities of poverty and extreme poverty. Grace is fluent in English & Spanish.
“Working with vulnerable communities, helping them to understand the importance of healthy nutrition in all stages of life, is the most satisfying task as a professional and as a person, as this will reduce the rates of anemia and chronic malnutrition that so affect our country. HOP, and in turn, CESAPU, has allowed me to meet a wonderful community and work hand in hand with excellent friends and professionals where together, we can contribute to improve the health of the population, focusing especially on prevention.”
