As part of our knowledge dissemination efforts, Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies (HMHB) is pleased to present a series of 30-45 minutes ‘Coffee and Chai Chats’ with experts in the field of maternal nutrition and health.
These sessions offer a deep dive into one topic related to maternal nutrition and MMS and the chance to ask LIVE questions to experts for more detailed responses and engagement than a normal webinar. Participants will be able to interact directly with practitioners in the field and identify additional needs for clarity or information.
Once registered, participants will be registered for the entire series and will keep receiving zoom links to the chats as and when they are organized. Registrants are welcome to attend any number of chats. Each chat is independent of the others and not in continuation by topic. Information on upcoming chats is given below.
