Do you Have a Chronic Condition/Disability or Care for Someone Who Does?
The UBC Health Mentors Program is looking for Health Mentors to share their medical expertise with our healthcare students. The UBC Health Mentors Program is a 9-month volunteer program in which adult mentors and/or caregivers meet 6 times with a small team of UBC students. Health Mentors are experts in their health and want to share their experiences living with a chronic condition. Students are new healthcare professionals who learn about patient-centered care and how providers can better support people with chronic conditions. By being a Health Mentor you will be part of a pioneering program that is contributing to the education of the health professionals of tomorrow. Health Mentors should live in the Metro Vancouver area and be comfortable talking about their health condition. The program starts in September 2019 and runs to May 2020.
