Since its inception in 2010, the roadshow has connected with more than 10,500 high school students in 56 communities throughout BC. 

The Healthcare Travelling Roadshow is delivered in partnership with the University of Northern BC, UBC Faculty of Medicine, Northern Medical Programs Trust, Rural Education Action Plan, Interior Health, and Island Health.
