Healthcare Travelling Roadshow

Held every spring, the Healthcare Travelling Roadshow is focused on inspiring young minds in northern B.C. communities to consider health care as a future career. Co-ordinated through the Northern Medical Program (NMP), it brings together post-secondary health professional students from around B.C., including UNBC nursing and the NMP, to showcase their fields at rural high schools.
