One of the fun things about working at Dimagi is that we get the chance to talk to other people about the exciting work we’re doing. And despite it being summertime, this past August was particularly busy for those kinds of outside talks. Below is a sample of some talks our staff gave in August:
Dimagi Project Manager Christina Jeffrey spoke at a summer class at the D’Amore McKim Business School at Northeastern University in Boston, MA for business owners and aspiring business owners. Christina talked about Dimagi’s development as a business, including how it became a software company that provides a combination of products and service offerings implemented by locally-based staff. Christina is based out of Dimagi’s Boston Office, where she is leading our domestic health strategy work.
Dimagi Project Manager Kara Grijalva presented on a panel at Saving Lives at Birth’s DevelopmentxChange in Washington, DC. Kara spoke about Dimagi’s experience implementing mobile health tools around the world for maternal, newborn, and child health, focusing specifically on those that are improving healthcare delivery at birth. She was joined by Changamka MicroHealth’s Sam Agatu, who spoke about their own experiences using mobile tools.
Finally, August was a busy time for workshops! Dimagi and Grameen Foundation held the first MOTECH Suite workshop in Accra, Ghana. From Dimagi’s end, Dimagi Field Managers and engineers Andrea Fletcher, Dale Batistolli, and Nick Pelegrino all helped lead the MOTECH Suite workshop. In Sydney, Dimagi’s Siajai Liangpunsakul hosted a CommCare workshop in Sydney, in conjunction with the Sydney School of Public Health. Saijai will be leading another upcoming CommCare workshop in Myanmar, which we are taking applications for until September 10th.
In the future, we will be doing a better job advertising upcoming Dimagi talks within Dimagi’s CommCare product update, which includes Dimagi News. To receive these updates, make sure to sign up here.
