Date & Time: Wednesday, October 23, 10:30am – 3:30pm

Location: West Atrium, UBC Life Sciences Centre

Description: Allies in Health is an open-house fair that connects community organizations, patient support groups and people involved in these agencies with UBC students and faculty.

The fair is an opportunity for students and faculty members to learn about:

  • the experiences of living with illness or disability from patients/clients/community members, and their interactionswith health professionals and the health care system
  • resources and information available in the community for health professionals and their patients/clients
  • patient and community organizations and what they do.

The fair brings the unique expertise of people from the community into the education of health professionals. It fosters familiarity, dialogue and partnerships between the academy and the community. The fair is one of several initiatives by the Division of Health Care Communication that bring the community and students together — with the community as teacher.
