Celebrating the Legacy of His Royal Highness Prince Mahidol of Songkla: A Century of Progress in Public Health and Medicine in Thailand (Aug 25-27, 2016)

You, your colleagues, friends and students are invited to join us at the special event on August 25 to 27, 2016 in Massachusetts.

August 27, 2016 is the 100th Anniversary of His Royal Highness Prince Mahidol of Songkla's arrival in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Prince Mahidol came to study Public Health at Harvard School of Public Health (formerly The Harvard-MIT School of Health Officers, The Harvard-Technology School of Public Health). Prince Mahidol, the first Thai royal to study in the USA, was a son of King Chulalongkorn and Queen Savang Vadhana and was the father of the two kings, Rama VIII and the present King Rama IX.

In Gloucester he stayed at Hotel Moorland near the Headquarter of Siamese Legation at 3 Page Street, one of the historic homes in the Trail of Thai Royalty that KTBF marked with a historic plaque. Since 1897, and for more than 50 years, Gloucester was a summer residence of the Siamese legation. Legations of many countries including Siam located their offices to Gloucester from May to October. Many residences where past Siamese legations stayed still exist.

KTBF, the Thai community, citizens and representatives of the City of Gloucester, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH), Harvard Medical School (HMS), Thai Physician Associations of America (TPAA), Thai Nurse Associations of Illinois (TNAI), from Thailand: Mahidol University (MU), Prince of Songkla University (PSU), Chulalongkorn University (CU), Khon Kaen University(KKU) and Mahidol University International Demonstration School (MUIDS) are planning the event: Celebrating The Legacy of His Royal Highness Prince Mahidol of Songkla: A Century of Progress in Public Health and Medicine in Thailand. This significant occasion is to commemorate Prince Mahidol and strengthen the longtime relationship of Massachusetts and Thailand. This opportunity only comes once in our lifetime.

The symposium on August 25, 2016 will be held at Harvard Medical School. August 25th is not just about the distinguished history the Prince created, but it's also about the future that lay ahead. You will experience with the new, fresh ideas from younger generations of public health workers, physicians, and scientists at this important meeting. In addition you will learn about the history of Thailand in Massachusetts and visit the historic places where Prince Mahidolís family stayed from 1916 to 1928.
