UBC Medical Alumni Association Wellness Week returns for 2023!

For UBC medical students, residents, alumni, and UBC MAA members, having a healthy mind and body makes an incredible difference in the ability to help others. Now’s the time to take action.

From August 17 to 24, 2023, during UBC MAA Wellness Week, presented by MD Financial Management, you can:

  • Choose your own healthy adventure by picking activities to do throughout the week that will improve your health or relax your mind. Walk the stairs, bike, read, colour—do what you can on your time, wherever you are!
  • Take part in fun contests for bragging rights and amazing prizes.
  • Participate in an organized hybrid wellness activity in Vancouver and online!

My wife and I played table tennis at a local outdoor park. More creative people did axe throwing or did a new activity every day. Part of the fun is being creative! – Jim Boyle, MD‘78

Stay tuned – registration opens this summer!
