The Institute for Healthy Living and Chronic Disease Prevention is a research centre based at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus.
We encourage and support research that brings the community and the university together to generate and use new knowledge for the benefit of individuals, families and communities.
Our goal is to encourage innovative and collaborative research to:
- Further our understanding of factors that influence health and
well-being to provide new directions for health promotion and
improvements in health equity, and;
- Foster the development of strategies to support healthy living
to improve health and prevent chronic disease.
