Meet Our Summer Staff!
The BC Epilepsy Society is proud to take part in the 2019 Canada Summer Jobs program, which provides people aged 15-30 with work experience relevant to their field of interest. This year, we have brought on three summer staff and would like to introduce you to Chanpreet Litt, Sukhbir Gill, and Cynthia Liu.
Chanpreet Litt is our Summer Outreach Coordinator. She recently graduated from Queen’s University with an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Health Studies. In the future, she hopes to pursue a Masters of Public Health and has interest in health promotion, health policy and program design and evaluation. This summer, she is looking forward to helping the BC Epilepsy Society promote epilepsy awareness in the community. Outside of the classroom and work, she enjoys dancing, hiking and pretty much any outdoor activities.
Sukhbir Gill is our Summer Education Assistant. She recently graduated from Simon Fraser University with an Honours Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences. In the future, she hopes to attend medical school to make a difference in people’s lives and promote the health of disadvantaged and hard to reach populations. This summer, she is looking forward to helping the BC Epilepsy Society support people living with epilepsy and their families. During her free time, she enjoys playing soccer, listening to music, and trying new foods.
Cynthia Liu is our Summer Events Assistant. She is currently a third year Applied Health Sciences student pursuing an Honours Bachelor of Public Health at the University of Waterloo. She is hoping to go on an international exchange program in her fourth year to study as well as to explore a new culture. In the future, she would like to continue her education to either attend medical school or participate somewhere in the medical field. This summer, she is looking forward to helping the BC Epilepsy Society with events using her knowledge of healthcare, health promotion and health policy. She is passionate about travelling, making new friends and seeking opportunities to enrich herself.
