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 a provincially registered non-profit under the British Columbia Societies Act as MEDIC for Innovation Foundation.

CHRONIC DISEASE

: a human health condition that is persistent or otherwise long-lasting in its effects 

Our Approach

We have a multifaceted approach to addressing chronic diseases. Our organization integrates diverse research programs with a commitment to direct service and advocacy efforts. This unique combination ensures a holistic approach to tackling chronic diseases, from advancing scientific knowledge to actively improving the lives of affected individuals.

SERVICE ETHIC

The Care Companion Program at the MEDIC Foundation is a transformative initiative, designed to bridge the gap between university students and patients diagnosed with chronic conditions. Built on the understanding of the deep significance of meaningful human connection and companionship, this program seeks to establish compassionate partnerships that enhance the quality of life for patients, while simultaneously facilitating innovation in the biomedical field.

Thanks for subscribing!

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.
