Connecting people and researchers to build a healthier B.C.

June 16, 2021

Could you be the key to the next breakthrough in health care? Join us on REACH BC and lend your voice to patient-oriented research.

 

How you can make a difference

REACH BC connects people with health researchers across B.C. Volunteers can participate in clinical trials or become a patient partner. Anyone can sign up! Most of the studies available right now relate to COVID-19, but in the future there will be other research topics available.

At Interior Health we are fortunate to have a committee made up of patient partners, who champion patient-oriented research in our region. They help to set priorities for patient-centred health research and promote patient-initiated research projects and patient partners on research teams.

 

COVID-19 has proven that even in the toughest of times, we work better together. By connecting people with researchers, we can build a stronger and healthier B.C.
