2021 Council

Executive Council

Jeremy Bulatao

President

Marcus Wong

VP Internal

What is your goal?

I want to promote all of our amazing UBC Pharmacy Clubs and remove any barriers preventing students from attending club events. One of my bigger goals this year is to decrease the number of overlapping events in the PhUS events calendar. If multiple events interest you, you should be able to attend all of them! Students shouldn’t have their opportunities limited by scheduling conflicts between clubs and organizations.

I also want to support students that are studying for long sessions on campus by regularly stocking the PhUS lounge with study fuel before big assessments.
