Miss Narisa Limpapaswat
1. 2nd Year Medical Student at Chulalongkorn University
2. Deputy Vice President for Internal Affairs of the International Federation of Medical Students Association Thailand (IFMSA-TH)
Currently studying medicine full-time in Thailand, Narisa could trace her involvement and interest in the fields of public health and human rights back to her high school days in New Zealand. In 2016, she was a scholarship recipient for New Zealand Model United Nations and Aoteroa Youth Declaration, becoming a part of the national youth presence. She was then selected to attend the Rotary National Science Youth Forum the year after, which, along with leading her school’s Amnesty International society and 40-Hour Famine Committee, began her introduction to the inextricability of health and science to all aspects of life and society. She graduated as one of New Zealand’s International Baccalaureate Top Scholars in 2017, and thereafter became a medical student at Chulalongkorn University. In her first year, she entered the IFMSA-TH as its Liaison to the National Health Assembly and subsequently headed the IFMSA-TH delegation to Thailand’s 2019 National Health Assembly. Since the start of her second year, she has continued to immerse herself in the task of advocating the importance of public health in the context of the One Health Approach, via various different events such as the World Health Organization Simulation Thailand 2020, and this PMAC2021.
