Engaging Young People in Research, Clinical Care, and Policy at Foundry


“Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth.” – J. K. Rowling


At the World Economic Forum in January 2020, an urgent call was made to invest in programs that expand access to care for young people. In response to this crisis, British Columbia has been re-conceiving how services are delivered, specifically in the form of integrated youth health services (IYHS). The emerging field of IYHS studies the way in which service transformation meets the needs of young people and their families. This talk will highlight novel ways to engage young people in research to improve the health outcomes of youth and communities, using a multi-disciplinary lens and responding to the pressing issues faced by young people (particularly, vulnerable youth).


Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.
