Dear TPAA members,
For seven decades, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej was Thailand’s guiding light, a beacon of hope for Thais rich and poor, young and old, rural farmers and urban residents alike. On October 13, 2016 the day we lost our Father of the nation, Thai people everywhere were in shock and saddened with deepest sorrow, the nation has since been in mourning. His Majesty King Bhumibol’s selflessness, generosity and compassion will always be remembered.
Thai Physicians Association of America has participated in the remembrance of the King at the King Bhumibol Adulyadej Square in Cambridge, near His Majesty’s birthplace at Mount Auburn hospital. TPAA placed a flower wreath on a stand at the memorial among other dozens of flower bouquets and candles at the square.
TPAA will also host a night of chanting at Dhammaram temple in Chicago on November 12, 2016.
Siriporn Kulkumthorn, M.D.
President TPAA 2016
