Starting in the month of January, YMAP will be collaborating with the Alzheimer Society of Canada to host a fundraiser dedicated to supporting research related to the treatment fo Alzheimer’s Disease. At the same time, we will be spreading awareness on the prevalence of Alzheimer's, as well as recounting the stories of patients. We hope that everyone will join us in our journey to support those living with Alzheimer's Disease and other dementias
The Bio-Startup challenge is a competition that provides high school students with the opportunity to experience the field medical-entrepreneurship. They will build projects and prepare business pitch decks related to COVID-19 (or neuroscience, bioengineering, medicine). Participants will create a pitch deck with the help of mentors who are currently in university/college for medical and business fields, and perform their ideas to a panel of judges. The top three winning groups will receive financial or technical support for their project.
