Dear Friends and Colleagues,

E-learning is a challenging new approach to bringing knowledge to a global classroom. Precisely, because this approach is best suited for the contribution of academic capacity building in fighting the global problem of malnutrition, we are offering the course “Malnutrition in Developing Countries” as an e-learning tool beginning in fall 2013.

To do so successfully we will need financial and goodwill support from as many as possible. You can contribute your good will to the project by voting for us. Voting for a positive contribution to fight Malnutrition in Developing Countries takes less than two minutes. Please do so and support our common goals by using the following link:
