Massive Open Online Course at LMU Munich: “Nutrition & Lifestyle in Pregnancy”

Women who plan to have a child should keep an eye on their diets even before they become pregnant: This new online course elucidates the impact of the expectant mother’s nutrition and lifestyle on the health of the child.

The aims of the new online course from LMU are: (i) to inform participants about the very significant impact that early nutrition has on health in later life, and; (ii) to enable them to advise expectant mothers and those who are planning to have a child on the steps to be taken during pregnancy in this regard.

The primary target audience is healthcare professionals (gynecologists, obstetricians, paediatricians, nutritionists, dieticians as well as nurses and midwives) and medical students.

LMU has been providing Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) as a novel form of collaborative learning on the Coursera platform since 2103.

In response to the level of demand, two of these MOOCs are also available in Chinese.

The seminars are open to all those interested in the relevant field and are accessible worldwide – admission is open and free of charge.
