Over the course of one week, over 310 UBC MD students, residents, alumni, and UBC MAA members from all over BC, and even as far as Toronto, joined us for our second annual UBC Medical Alumni Association Wellness Week, a completely virtual opportunity to focus on health and wellbeing. We had students from all four years and from all four distributed sites, 18 resident specialties, and alumni from 22 class years.
Participants took over 100 selfies, documenting the over 60 unique activities they completed, including things they’ve never done before like pickleball, spike ball, sudoku, embroidering, wakeboarding, and pilates!
