Applications closing for once-in-a-degree opportunity

March 21, 2018

“You won’t find another program like this. I guarantee it will be the highlight of your academic career.”
- Health Change Lab 2017 alumni

Health Change Lab is a 10-credit, once-in-a-degree experiential learning program. Apply before April 1st to work in interdisciplinary teams to investigate a real social, economic, or environmental challenge that impacts community health. Together, you will build a sustainable business model to creatively respond to it and pitch your ideas to community influencers – all in just 13 weeks.

In this immersive experience, you will learn about the core practices of social innovation, design thinking, prototyping, and human-centred design.

You and your team will present to partner panels for feedback mid-term, and will be given the opportunity to connect with community organizations and partners from the City of Surrey to help build on your ideas and envision how those ideas could proceed in the real world.

Sessions are a mix of hands-on workshops, coaching by instructors and experts, limited content lectures, guest speakers, and open work time in your teams to advance your ideas.

You can find more program details, including how to apply, on the RADIUS website:
