ABOUT THE PRESIDENT

                                                                                   Celia Penny Moses-Nagbiku 
                                                                       Health and Nutrition Educator/ / Geneticist 

                                                                                    
Celia Penny Moses-Nagbiku specializes in overall wellness with special interests in malnutrition and preventing premature aging. She holds a Master’s of Science degree in Health and Nutrition Education from Hawthorn University, Whitethorn, California, and a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Genetics from the University of Calabar, Cross Rivers State, Nigeria.  

She is the founder of the CeliaPenny Gene-Nutrition Solutions in Lagos, Nigeria. She is also the president of a not-for-profit organization CeliaPenny Foundation for the Prevention of Malnutrition in Africa.                                                                               

She is currently a Nigerian coordinator with ‘Movement of Life’ a not-for-profit organization which is a part of Dr. Rath Health Foundation in the Netherlands.  She acts as a bridge between the medical experts / researchers around the world and the lay public. She simplifies and communicates nutritional information to give understanding on safe and affordable local foods that are nutrient dense. This will help eradicate Health Illiteracy and Prevent Malnutrition in our communities.


She has an interest in improving the lives of other people and does not advocate a fad diet which is transient. Neither does she propose that any one-miracle food or drink can cure you of the incurable and make you an overnight super-model. She encourages you to ‘birth a habit’.


She believes in timely medical attention when needed. Given the current nutrient depletion from our foods, we all need nutrients through supplements. However supplements in high doses for specific reasons should be taken under the supervision of a competent health practitioner who is familiar with any unfavourable side effects. Her passion for preventing premature aging (a result of malnutrition), by restoring the body's biochemical balance is evident. Being over 50 and looking great proves her point - it is doable!!!
