Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the Health and Well-Being of Young Adults in British Columbia

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all of us, though, some more than others. The BC COVID-19 SPEAK Survey we funded last year showed one key group that was experiencing significant unintended consequences of the pandemic: young adults.

Another Election, Another Reason to Talk About Voting and Health

Last year, we wrote “Why Voting is Good for Your Health and Our Collective Health.” This year, as we face a federal election, we’re once again urging all eligible people to vote, especially young adults.

Our Role in Helping to Address the COVID-19 Pandemic

As a small public health organization during a global pandemic, we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished over the past 19 months. We invite you to come along this reflective journey with us.
