MEDLIFE’S FIRST WEST COAST CONFERENCE OFFERS STUDENTS FROM A RANGE OF UNVERSITIES A CHANCE TO DISCUSS, BRAINSTORM, AND FOSTER A COMMUNITY OF STUDENTS EMPOWERED AND PASSIONATE FOR PROMOTING HEALTH EDUCATION AND ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE THROUGHOUT LATIN AMERICA.
UC Berkeley’s MEDLIFE Chapter cordially invites all MEDLIFE chapters and their members to UC Berkeley for a chance to meet with one another, share, and discuss various aspects of MEDLIFE. The conference will be held February 17th-18th at UC Berkeley (about 25 minutes outside of San Francisco). We have a great weekend planned, including bonding activities, public health guest speakers, interactive workshops, and more! The conference will be a unique opportunity for MEDLIFE members from across the nation to meet in person and promote our important cause.
Attendees should arrive between 5:00 PM and 7:30 PM and will be hosted by one of the UC Berkeley members. Upon arrival, Friday night will include a welcome dinner and a fun-filled scavenger hunt on the Berkeley campus! Various activities and workshops will commence on Saturday — including a UC Berkeley professor’s lecture on his/her work in the healthcare sector in poverty-stricken, developing countries as well as various workshops on establishing a successful chapter and reflections on experiences in MEDLIFE.
There will be a participation fee of $30, which includes all meals and costs for activities during the conference. We hope you will be able to join us!
