On 9 October 2022 the Thai Medical Women’s Association (TMWA) held their Annual General Meeting. Their activities included the new executive committee election; the Outstanding Medical Women Awards were awarded to Dr. Amporn Benjaponpithak and Dr. Panrudee Manomaipiboon in Administration, to Associate Professor Nantana Sirisup and Professor Kanokwalai Kulthanun in Academic Medicine, and to Dr. Ruethai Wattanavanich, SQN.LDR. Dr. Surangkana Techapaitoon in Service and Health.
The TMWA Scholarship for Female Medical Students: this arose from a joint effort between friends in Thailand and overseas. It was born from their love and appreciation for Thailand and has grown over the past 15 years through the dedication of TMWA members. The scholarship program is making a major contribution to improving public health care delivery in remote areas of Thailand. We provided 22 scholarships for this year.
