On this occasion, Mae Fah Luang University invited over 60 students from Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Health Science and Information Technology to collect health information via medical check-ups including exercises and nutrition tips to elderly people at the community.

Esso (Thailand) Public Company Limited has continuously supported Mae Fah Luang University on several health initiatives. Previous activities included the exemplary health program at Dusit Technical Border Patrol Police School and health promotion for the elderly at Mae Kham sub-district in Chiang Rai province.

This program is aimed at encouraging students to utilize their knowledge and give back to society by improving health of the elderly.
