Unilab Hosts Youth Camp for Change
Unilab holds its first ever idea generation camp and competition for college students.
With promoting the Bayanihan Spirit among the youth as its goal, Unilab holds Ideas Positive: The Unilab Youth Camp for Change. College students are challenged to come up with fresh and innovative ideas that would effect positive change in their chosen communities. The students’ social marketing ideas should focus on promoting health and wellness.
- The Unilab Youth Camp for Change was held last September 23 to 25. Workshops were held during the first two days of the Clinic, and the idea generation contest finals on the third.
- Workshop tasks were led by Francis Kong, Mark Ruiz, Bam Aquino, Mari Oquinena, Alex Lacson, and Peachy Pacquing.
- Five finalists were chosen from the 21 entries – “Mamamayang Ayaw sa Dengue” from UST, “Sa Unilab, Bubuti Ka” from De La Salle University Dasmarinas, “Buklod-Bukid: Sowing Nutrition, Reaping Hope” from UA&P, “Adopt a PET” from UP Diliman, and “May Papel Ako” from UP Diliman.
- The winning team gets the P100,000 seed money prize from Unilab to execute their proposal. They also win a three-day, two-night group vacation package to Boracay.
- First prize went to UA&P. Teams from UP Diliman and UST became runner-ups.

“We at Unilab are glad to partner with the students in translating their positive ideas into action to improve the health and wellness of communities.”
“As our corporate philosophy, Bayanihan is the guiding force that has enabled Unilab to become the leading pharmaceutical company in the country today. This same strength of Bayanihan to draw forth the finest quality of every individual and combine them into something something powerful enough to change lives is something that we’d like to extend outside Unilab through Ideas Positive.”
