VFMP Municipal Advocacy
Committee Chairs: Sanya Grover, Keerthana Kumar, Elaine Hu, Katherine Bilan & Diana Kagan
The VFMP Municipal Advocacy Committee represents UBC medical students at the Vancouver-Fraser campus in advocating for the health of our local communities here on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people. In the 2023-2024 school year, we are planning on focusing our efforts on harm reduction and safe supply initiatives, such as writing op-eds in support of activist-led organizations such as the Drug User Liberation Front, working on creating a more inclusive curriculum that bridges content with the lived experiences of people who use substances, and hosting naloxone training for students. We are always looking for passionate & committed members, so please reach out if you’re interested in joining!
