We are UBC students in diverse programs that want to do something proactive and worthwhile in the community! There are a lot of misconceptions and stigma associated with liver disease. The cause is often perceived to be alcohol (which is only one cause from many), thus those affected are often blamed or misunderstood by the public. There are actually over 100 types of liver disease. One of the most important is hepatitis. There are 10x the amount of people affected by hepatitis than by AIDS or any cancer! Yet, there is a disproportionate amount of awareness compared to other health issues. Join us! ” Be at the forefront of making changes in your community! ” Start on your path to a future career in healthcare! ” Network with renowned doctors and representatives! ” Learn about current health issues! ” Gain opportunities in leadership and volunteering!
