Organized on June 12-13, 2014, the meeting was aimed to enhance the readiness of the THOHUN-NCO team for EPT-2. It was the first gathering of the whole team allowing liaisons to officially meet with THOHUN-NCO staff. Brainstorming and discussions allowed all team members to recall past challenges and how to deal with such issues in the future. The meeting was also intended to strengthen relationships among THOHUN-NCO team members for more effective communication and coordination. In attendance were five THOHUN-NCO staff, one faculty liaison from the Faculty of Veterinary Science, Mahidol University, four university liaisons (Chulalongkorn University, Kasetsart University, Prince of Songkla University, and Khon Kaen University), and three guest speakers.
