Event description

Description

Health research depends on all kinds of people. You can be healthy, sick, young or old and can help by volunteering to participate in research in a variety of ways.

Let's talk! You're invited to a Community Dialogue on the development of a new program in British Columbia that will help connect people like you to research opportunities.

Come and share your ideas and tell us:

  • why is health research important to you?
  • how can we keep you informed of research opportunities?

Space is limited, so reserve your spot today!

Refreshments will be provided.
