RESEARCHING, RAISING AWARENESS,
REVOLUTIONIZING THE FIELD OF CHRONIC CONDITIONS
Driven and powered by university students.
Welcome to the MEDIC Foundation
MEDIC Stands for Medical Engineering students Designing Innovations for a Cause. We were created with the vision of improving the accessibility to healthcare technology for patients diagnosed with chronic conditions.
We are officially incorporated and registered under the British Columbia Societies Act as MEDIC for Innovation Foundation.

A GLOBAL MINDSET
The Global Outreach Project
We are dedicated to providing rural communities locally and globally with access to medical technology. With our connections in areas such as Sri Lanka, Nigeria and India, our team spends a portion of our time working on collecting medical supplies and funds to donate to such communities.
We believe that awareness about chronic conditions is equally as important as researching for them. Each month our team curates and publishes newsletters comprising information about chronic conditions. We interview students, professors and patients to generate a unique perspective towards each topic with the goal of generating interest and advocacy around chronic diseases.

Jack Pirie | Engineering Technologist | Diabetes
"I have lived with type 1 diabetes for 12 years, so I understand first-hand how demanding living with a chronic disease can be. Biomedically developed devices have allowed me to live a relatively normal life since my diagnosis, and I can only imagine how difficult enduring a chronic disease must be without similar medical care and access to technology. I am thankful for MEDIC for giving me the opportunity to give back to this field that has positively impacted my life beyond belief."
