New online course for the school of midwifery CASA in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

The Foundation Millennia2025 recently launched its new online course on the topic of digital applications for maternal and children’s health. The course, available in Spanish only, is comprised of 8 modules of 30 minutes each, including an evaluation exercise. Developed with the support of the WeObservatory, with its partners CASA and Connecting Midwives, the course is dedicated to the students of the school of midwifery CASA, in San Miguel de Allende, meeting-with-the-midwivesMexico.  The initial version of this course –authored by Dr. Lilia Perez-Chavolla, Dr. Véronique Inès Thouvenot and Kate N. Frometa– was evaluated by CASA’s students and teachers in San Miguel de Allende and Mexico City, during a field trip in January 2015, and revised based on their feedback (photos of the field trip in our Photo Gallery)

The course’s 8 modules are currently available in PDF format directly on the WeObservatory site.

Starting in 2017, the Foundation plans to provide access to the modules from the WePromis platform:
