Allan Guan BKin
Allan is starting as a Clinical Chronicler in September 2017. He started volunteering with CHANGEpain in February 2016 while he was completing his Bachelor of Kinesiology at UBC. He graduated in spring 2017 and will be starting medical school in Australian in January 2018.
What led him to study Kinesiology was a thirst for understanding root causes of musculoskeletal injuries, rehabilitation, and ultimately to help improve other people's quality of life. This led him to volunteer as an Assistant Kinesiologist at a spinal cord injury rehabilitation center in Richmond and at CHANGEpain.
Allan has many different passions, which include fitness and the outdoors, music, and global aid. He loves playing rugby, soccer, competing in Powerlifting competitions and backpacking in the mountains. In his free time, he likes to play the guitar or ukelele and was also a piano teacher for many years.
Allan is also currently a Reservist in the Canadian Armed Forces as a Medic, and regularly goes to different areas around Canada for training.
