Thank you Dr. Celi for posting. It would be a pleasure to sit in on one of your courses. For those of us outside the Boston area, will you have any webcast lectures or recordings available online? Regards from Zambia, Kali Drake

Just read about this course online. Great to hear about the
MHealth seminars as well. I know myself and many colleagues here in
Swaziland would also be interested in any recordings made available.
Thank you!

Hello, everyone,
We will be recording the sessions from both the workshop on building mHealth applications and the course on health information systems.  We will make them available on the web as soon as we can.  In the mean time, please visit last year's course either at the Sana website (http://sana.mit.edu/hst184/) or on MIT Open CourseWare (http://bit.ly/rvFoVp).

This is really nice!

Will they be available only as recordings or also as simultaneous webcasts?

Hello everybody. I'm delighted to resume contacts with you, Leo, after our conversation last summer.
I’m very interested in joining the IAP Workshop on mHealth applications, being currently committed in developing a collaboration between a Hospital in my Country and some health care premises in Angola for whose personnel I should give my contribution to customize the applications provided by OpenMRS and Sana.
However, I read that the course’s program is limited to morning sessions.
I’m coming expressly from Italy and I would appreciate very much being involved in some “curricular” extra activities ( I’m a medical doctor) in order to make my stay in Cambridge the most advantageous in terms of experience and knowledge transfer regarding both OpenMRS and Sana clinical usage.
I wonder if this opportunity can be arranged in advance, maybe collecting adhesions among those of us who come from outside the Boston area.
Thank you... and Happy new year!

Sorry, Dr. Torres.  No funding for webcast.

Thanks for answering my question. I look forward to using the recordings.
