Free-Online Education

Last week I challenged you to use spring break to plan out some educational opportunities for the upcoming year. If traditional courses don’t fit into your weekly schedule, you do have other options.

Check out edX, a totally free way to take classes for major universities. There are several classes wanna-be midwives could benefit from.

Food for Thought looks at the role of food in health.

 Introduction to Global Health teaches you to identify and analyze variations between countries.

Health and Society looks at the social variables that affect health.

Behavioral Medicine teaches concepts to help clients make healthy changes.

Plus a whole section on statistics to help you become a better consumer of research.


Here’s to a very educational summer!
