UBC-O Nursing Students “Global Gala”
Welcome to the 10th Annual Global Gala!
This event is hosted by a group of nursing students from the University of British Columbia Okanagan (UBCO) in partnership with Okanagan-Zambia Health Initiative (OkaZHI).
The Global Gala is a formal charity event that will include a three course catered dinner, entertainment, silent auction as well as other opportunities to help raise funds towards health initiatives, supporting outreach clinics, and purchasing medical equipment in Ghana and Zambia.
For fourteen years, nursing students who are passionate about global health and building capacity in communities have had the opportunity to participate in a global health practicum in Ghana, and more recently, Zambia.
For the fourth year, the UBCO nursing students are excited to be partnering with the Okanagan-Zambia Health Initiative (OkaZHI). OkaZHI is a local volunteer, non-governmental organization comprised of an interdisciplinary healthcare team.
Their primary mission is to work in partnership with Zambian, Canadian and international education institutions to improve the health of people living in Zambia.
They do this through supporting and strengthening healthcare in Zambia.
