On 29th April 2013 at Mission Hospital Phuket, Phuket Chief Medical Officer – Dr Buncha Kakhong presided over the event “Health Market” by Mission Hospital Phuket, which saw the hospital provide health drinks, fresh vegetables and free health check-ups to a number of visitors.
Director of Mission Hospital Phuket Athikom Srirattana-Prapas said “We held a health market because we recognize the importance of promoting healthcare, and we want the people in our community to be physically and mentally healthy body and to be able to select good food.
Dr Buncha said “People can protect their own health and that of their families by having knowledge on the right things to eat and drink. At present, the younger generation prefers eating outside the home and this means their parents don’t know what they are eating. This could, in some cases, result in them catching diseases.”
