"Mobile Health Without Borders" A New Online Course Experience for the World: Open-Source Education as a Path to Global Health Solutions


This poster describes a new online course, "Mobile Health Without Borders," which addresses the intersecting fields of global health, mobile health, and entrepreneurship, with an emphasis on enabling the transition from learner to doer. Each class focuses on a specific topic and region related to these fields, and consists of multiple short lectures from world experts. The class is free and open to the public, in order to generate collaborations to bridge regional and cultural insights with technical capabilities to enable best-practice global health solutions.
