Event description
BMSA 20th Anniversary Celebration!

About this event

Time for Celebration

I am excited about the 20th anniversary of the BMSA. Sean Wharton here, 1st President of the BMSA. In the year 2000, PJ, Makela and I started the BMSA out of frustration as we looked out saw very few Black faces in Medicine. We wanted to make a change. We rallied with our friends, and the staff at UofT. We started by selling photocopies of old undergrad exams to make some money and to pay for education events to help Black students in undergrad to improve their GPA and prepare for the MCATs. We worked hard, our class of 3, and this year at UofT there are 16 BMSAers, that's right 16, and they are working hard to keep that wave of change going.

Come and Celebrate with us 20 years of achievement.

Please note this event is open only to current and past BMSA Members.
