We are active beyond hosting just events: Come and join us or let your voice be heard for some of these other initiatives that we do!
Currently Ongoing Initiatives
There are many talented individuals currently working on the following initiatives at UBC Cancer Association!
Do you want to learn more about cancer? Curious about breakthroughs in cancer research? Check out Cancer Decoded, a comic series that breaks down complex scientific ideas into engaging pieces that can be easily understood by anyone.
Club for Cancer
By partnering with local clubs, we’ve been able to get tickets for cover at some of the hottest spots around town, all while going towards a good cause!
We’re lookign to start up exam packs (and sales) for one popular course here at UBC, either in 2018W or 2019W. This would provide an excellent way for us to raise money in the fight against cancer!
The initiatives listed below are initiatives previously done at UBC Cancer Association. Does one of these initiatives interest you? We’re looking for teams to help lead them! Contact us!
Grief Support Group
The UBCCA is starting a student run grief support group on campus. The goal for this support group is to provide bereaved students with a space to talk about their losses and receive support from others who have had similar experiences. We hope to create an atmosphere that normalizes death to make a comfortable environment to grieve, heal, and support each other.
Stories for UBCCA
Stories for UBCCAStories for UBCCA is a photo series showing the many ways cancer has affected us. Inspired by the much loved photos “Humans of New York”, each photo is accompanied by pieces of wisdom from the UBC community.
