UBC Healthcare Travelling Roadshow stops in Grand Forks Monday

There will be 10 health profession students on this year's trip.

Grand Forks Secondary is the place Monday students have a chance to learn more about jobs in healthcare as the University of BC hosts its Healthcare Travelling Roadshow.

The roadshow brings together a diverse group of healthcare students to showcase career options to high school students in hopes of inspiring the next generation of rural healthcare professionals.

There will be 10 health profession students on this year’s trip representing medicine, nursing, licensed practical nursing, respiratory therapy, midwifery, pharmacy, and optometry.

The Healthcare Travelling Roadshow will also make stops in Trail (Wednesday, May 3) and Nelson (Friday, May 5).

The Healthcare Travelling Roadshow begins in Grand Forks at 9:40 a.m., concluding with the final presentation at 1 p.m.

The Kootenay/Boundary roadshow is funded by the Rural Education Action Plan, Interior Health, and the UBC Southern Medical Program.
