This description of Yongyut Treenutkorn's work was prepared when Yongyut Treenutkorn was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1999.
Yongyut is creating Thailand's first integrated approach to the validation of traditional medicine by facilitating a system of peer-to-peer training by traditional doctors to the next generation; organizing the first traditional doctors professional association in Thailand; and linking the work to the conservation of local plants and herbs that support a healthy lifestyle.
