Dr. Thane Oke Kyaw Myint (SPHS60, IM1 67, Australia) was the pediatrician of my sons.
Our parents were dhamma friends and sponsors of the “Dat Paung Zon Aung Min Gaung Pagoda”.
I have covered him and his extended family in several posts. I also re-posted articles about the “Seven Sibilings (including four famous brothers)”.
Saya is a historian of “Medical Education in Burma/Myanmar”. He founded of the “Alumni of Myanmar Institutes of Medicine” group.
He paid tribute to the pioneers and/or mentors, and some outstanding mentees.
Saya air mailed me the book (which was compiled by his former students and colleagues for his 70th birthday). The postage was quite high.
