Assoc. Prof. Chayaporn Wattanasiri, Ph.D., President of Mae Fah Luang University, said “Mae Fah Luang University was established by the name of the mother of King Rama IX, Her Royal Highness Princess Srinagarindra, who was lovingly known to her subjects as Mae Fah Luang. HRH Princess Srinagarindra lavished her attention upon overall health and well-being of her subjects that contributed to the foundation of MFU Wellness Center for providing people with basic healthcare services which prevent people from getting sick and reduce the burden on national health expenditure. To maintain one’s good health, MFU Wellness Center is strongly oriented towards education and prevention rather than treatment as in our mission to achieving sustainable healthcare.”
Asst. Prof. Thawatchai Aphidechakul, Dr.P.H., Acting Director of MFU Wellness Center, Mae Fah Luang University, added “MFU Wellness center operates its services through 3P strategy: Prediction, Prevention and Promotion, which heavily emphasizes on people who face difficulty in getting medical services. Previously, we came across obstacles to providing mobile checkup and reaching out to TB patients in remote areas as the equipment that we have cannot be relocated into the areas. So, the physical checkup under the collaboration of MFU Wellness Center and FUJIFILM, that offers medical equipment support, has allowed medical professionals to provide diagnosis, basic healthcare services, and treatment for people with proper care.
