Dr. Cynthia spoke about the status of the clinic, the situation along the border and on going efforts to improve health care. Students from the Burma Study Center and Chiang Mai University were sponsored by individual members of CMIRC. Some 35 students from BEAM were able to attend due to the generosity of the Chiang Mai Expats Club.
