Deputy Mayor Manote Nongyai chaired the meeting on health promotion, disease prevention, initial medical care, and health rehabilitation.

Embracing the old adage that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” Pattaya trained 300 village health volunteers to push neighbors to stay healthy and prevent disease.



Deputy Mayor Manote Nongyai opened the Aug. 20-21 seminar at the Siamese Hotel.

The workshop focused on health promotion, disease prevention, initial medical care and health rehabilitation. Volunteers were shown how to harness data collection, communicate their findings across the health-promotion network for volunteers, and use methods to promote healthy lifestyles and disease prevention.

300 village health volunteers participated in the seminar.
