The Healthcare Travelling Roadshow will be visiting Grand Forks, Trail, and Nelson in early May with the goal of recruiting the next generation of rural BC health professionals.
High school students at Grand Forks Secondary, JL Crowe Secondary, and LV Rogers Secondary will get an opportunity to experience numerous hands-on activities and engage with healthcare students from medicine, nursing, licensed practical nursing, respiratory therapy, midwifery, and optometry.
Since its inception, the roadshow has connected with more than 5,000 youth in 22 communities throughout B.C. The roadshow initiative has grown to three regional trips this year including Kootenay/Boundary, Cariboo (Quesnel, Williams Lake, 100 Mile House), and North Thompson/Robson (McBride, Valemount, Clearwater, and Barriere).
The program is supported by the UBC Faculty of Medicine and University of Northern British Columbia. The Kootenay/Boundary trip is funded through the Southern Medical Program, Rural Education Action Plan, and Interior Health. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
