Allies in Health: Community and Patient Fair

The Allies in Health: Community and Patient Fair is an annual, one-day, interprofessional event that connects community-based organizations, patient support groups, and individuals involved in these agencies with UBC students and faculty. It is a part of UBC’s Celebrate Learning Week, which is held in late October.

The Fair recognizes the role community members play in the education of health professionals, as well as their unique expertise, and promotes meaningful partnerships between UBC and the communities it serves.

 The Fair is supported by the Division of Health Care Communication and the Office of the Vice-Provost Health.
