    Jaein Jeong

    Conference Chair

    As chair this year, Jaein is currently planning a second conference from a successful event last year. She is a medical laboratory student at UBC and continues to dream about medical school and hopefully become an anaesthesiologist. When she's not working on conference planning and looking over important emails for MedX, she's a lash technician in the evening and a bank teller on the weekends.

    Elaine Hu

    Planning Committee Member

    Elaine is studying Behavioural Neuroscience at UBC. She hopes to be a psychiatrist/neurosurgeon and is excited to be a part of MedX Vancouver to help other aspiring medical professionals find their place. Outside of working on school or research, she loves to cook, bullet journal, and play Nintendo games.

    Harjot Uppal

    Planning Committee Member

    Harjot is a second year student in the Integrated Sciences program at UBC. She aspires to become a pediatric surgeon and is looking forward to meeting like-minded individuals at this year’s MedX conference! When she’s not busy studying, you can find her hiking or scrolling through memes on social media.

    Rachel Jessica Lai

    Planning Committee Member

    Rachel is currently studying Psychology and Health & Society at the University of British Columbia. Growing up, she has always had the inclination to help and heal those around her, and she hopes to be able to continue this pursuit in her career by practicing medicine in the future. When she is not being crushed by exams and assignments, Rachel can be found going for a run in her neighbourhood, trying out new restaurants with her friends, and catching up on sleep.
