Saad Razzaq

President

Hi everyone! I am currently heading into my fourth year as an undergraduate studying in Honours Biology. Being a Co-Founder and the President of MEDLIFE Concordia, I am thrilled to lead the MEDLIFE family on a path to absolute humanitarianism. Together, as a chapter, our goal will be to progress the MEDLIFE mandate in local regions of Montreal and those abroad. We will accomplish these goals through volunteering initiatives, fundraising efforts, MEDtalks, and other community-based commitments. In less than a year since the introduction of this chapter, we have accumulated partnerships with various organizations, developed and organized our very own projects, and built a MEDLIFE family with near 100 members at Concordia University. I have learned so much from my experience with this amazing organization and would love to guide others in making a contribution as global citizens.

Service Learning Trip Officer

Hey there! I am currently in my 3rd year at Concordia University, completing my Specialization in Chemistry. I am very excited to be working as the Service Learning Trip Officer! My main goal for this semester is to organize a Service Learning Trip to communities in Tanzania lacking basic health services. On this trip, Mobile Clinic’s will be set up where volunteers alongside medical professionals help provide low income families with medicine, education, and development projects. Another goal that I have is to spread the MEDLIFE Movement. Having witnessed firsthand the hardships that many communities face on a Service Learning Trip to Cusco, Peru last year, I want to encourage others on campus to take a part in MEDLIFE’s mission by getting involved in both local and overseas initiatives. I cannot wait to share this incredible opportunity with other students who share the same vision and have a passion for making a difference in the world.

Treasurer

Hi! I’m starting my second year as an undergraduate this fall, pursuing my major in biology. I’m the Vice-President of Finance and this semester will be my first time working alongside MEDLIFE Concordia. My main goal this year is to recruit sponsors and build partnerships with several organizations but also share our vision with other students. I’m really looking forward for the upcoming year to work with my peers and help our local community and the ones abroad. Last year, with the help of hundreds of local volunteers, MEDLIFE had a much bigger impact on people’s lives than we ever thought possible. This year, we want to share this experience with more students and accomplish bigger goals. A variety of partnerships helped us along the way, and we believe this year’s chapter will be more significant.

Hello everyone! I am 3rd year Concordia student, pursuing a double-major in Biology and Psychology. As the Education Officer, my aim is to organize Educational Events such as MedTalks, where professionals in their field will be invited to inform the public about a variety of topics. I hope that after these discussions the audience would gain some knowledge that would help them to better understand the needs of their community.

Asad Razzaq

Social Media Officer

Currently in my last year in the Biology program, I am determined to play a role in raising awareness regarding medicine, education, and development in low-income families living in developing countries. Such being the mandate of the global organization known as MEDLIFE, I hope that Concordia University can be a major contributor to the cause in addition to being a leader in related initiatives in the future. Helping introduce disease prevention methods and provide sustainable developmental facilities can and will not be accomplished overnight, but I believe that each contribution brings the end goal closer. As the Social Media Officer, I’ll be responsible for the maintenance of the chapter’s website, Facebook, Instagram, and other forms of social media. Join us in helping recruit other Concordia University members to MEDLIFE Concordia, and play an integrate role in helping communities locally and abroad.
