Any need for volunteers at the table in DC? I'd be glad to help.

Hi Elie,

We hadn't thought about streaming anything from the booth but we do hope to create a video on "mHealth realities" that will be available post conference.... We'll also blog.

Hi Isaac,

I'm based in Dakar and don't know anyone heading over to DC for the conference, although I hope West Africa will be represented.

When there are web-based opportunities, would you post them for us here? Likewise, any summaries/blogs/shares from the mhealth Reality Booth would be much appreciated.

It would be great to have some access to the dialogue, even if it's asynchronous. Thanks in advance!

Hi Elie,

I'll be at the mHealth summit and leading the mHealth Reality Booth on Monday morning. I don't know what audio/video sharing will be setup but be in touch if you know someone who'll be there that might want to meet.

Is MedicSMS presenting at the mHealth conference next week? I was wondering if there will be any web-based access for those of us not able to attend (presentations, webcasts, etc)?

I'm particularly interested in lessons shared at the mHealth Reality Booth table. Wish I could be there!

It would be great to discuss topics shared with the larger FrontlineSMS/MedicSMS health community.

In a situation were things are not exactly as you want it speaking of a poor socialwelfare system....the responsibility is on you,following the Kiwanja principles to do something for your country......I dedicate this memebership to the NGO memebers in Edo state.

Hello Nduka,

Welcome to the FrontlineSMS Forum, happy to see you here, your work sounds very interesting. One great way to get started would be to check out this link, which has a number of resources on how to begin with FrontlineSMS. There are some documents there and a couple of videos too.


You may also try searching for Nigeria in the search bar in the FLSMS Forum, you will find several FrontlineSMS users in your country that may be able to help with local knowledge.


Let us know how it goes.


Kindest regards,

Health & Education:

Hello Frontliners Hope all is progressing in your different projects. I´m posting in both the Forums today :)

I work in Argentina in the School of Medicine, UM (


Is there any project aimed to pregrade medical students to assist in learning skills for clinical/hospital enviroments?


I¨d like to use Frontline Forms to collect statistical data from the public hospitals different prevalent disease to later plan for health interventions. The medical students can collect the data.


This is just one option I´d like to know if there are more creative ideas to teach medical students using SMS


All imput is greatly appreciated


Best regards

@Mathias: The pieces are coming togather thanks to your info. I may pursue the keyword option. Looks like it would be helpful to limit the clicks for those in the field trying to collect and submit data quickly and effectively.
