One of UBC’s signature events is LKS’s Manufacturer&#;s Night, an annual event held in March. It is the only professional event of its kind on the west coast. The purpose of this event is to not only introduce students to the manufacturing aspects of pharmacy to broaden their understanding of the pharmaceutical world, but to also provide networking opportunities with manufacturers themselves. LKS also organizes outreach events to have an impact in the community, for example blood drives and shore clean-ups. Through our alumni talks, there are also opportunities for LKS members to gain insight into the different career avenues in the field of pharmacy.
