Withoo Phrueksanan Named Chang-Lin Tien Visiting Fellow

Program Year: 2011

A month-long examination of forensic medicine enabled Dr. Withoo Phrueksanan, Assistant Dean and Lecturer, Faculty of Medicine, Prince of Songkla University, to draw on best practices from American experience that might have implications for human rights in Thailand’s southern border provinces. A two-week affiliation with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore was followed by an observation program in Michigan, Washington DC, and Northern California.

The Asia Foundation Chang-Lin Tien Fellows Program was established to foster exchanges for leaders to meet and interact with their counterparts in Asia and the U.S. The fellowship honors the late Dr. Chang-Lin Tien, former Chancellor of the University of California, Berkeley, for his many accomplishments in science, higher education, and community affairs. It was created to highlight Dr. Tien’s assuming the chairmanship of The Asia Foundation Board of Trustees in 1999.
