Calling All Artists for Resident Awareness Week

As part of our public outreach advocacy efforts during Resident Awareness Week (Feb 6 to 10, 2017), we will be setting up “awareness” booths at community centers in order to share information about residents with our local communities. This year, we are looking to create an educational colouring page for children about who resident doctors are. Who better to design these than residents themselves? So break out the pens and draw your representation of a resident doctor. Questions? Email info@residentdoctorsbc.ca.
