UBC Health Mentor Program – 2017-2018

Hi, my name is Jen Macdonald,

I am the coordinator for the UBC Health Mentors Program.

We are recruiting new volunteer patient mentors for our 2017-18 session, and are interested in connecting with patients and/or caregivers who may be suitable mentors.

I have attached electronic copies of the recruitment materials (poster, information sheet, and application forms for mentors/caregivers) {see below} to this email. We are looking for patients with chronic health conditions and/or their caregivers who would like to share their lived medical expertise with our healthcare students. We ask that you please share these materials and encourage suitable mentors to apply.

In addition, if your organization has a newsletter or list-serve of members, we would appreciate if you could forward an invitation for your members to apply to the Health Mentor program.

If you would like to set up an information session for potential applicants, you can contact me by e-mail at jen.macdonald@ubc.ca or by phone at 604-822-8002. I know that some our contacts may be out of date and if so, could you please forward this info onto the correct recipient.

Thanks so much,

Jen Macdonald
