Would you like to learn about an innovative project that has the potential to improve the healthy newborn outcomes through healthier and prolonged pregnancies?
Join us for a presentation of the Perinatal Photosynthesis Module Project developed by the Pettaway Pursuit Foundation and funded by the New England Region of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine. The Pettaway Pursuit Foundation is a maternal health and family organization aiming to empower expecting, at-risk mothers and new mothers with education and support.
The Pettaway doulas, (doulas are also known as women caregivers) will be demonstrating how mobile technology, through the use of tablets, enables the doulas to provide health education using the online resources of the National Library of Medicine to the expectant mothers and their families during home visits. The tablets also enable the mothers to receive additional support and online engagement through video and group chats in the time between home visits.
This is a FREE community event. All are welcome.
The presentation will be at the University of Mass Medical School on
ThursdayApril 20th at 11AM in Amphitheatre II S4-102.
