Northern Health is inviting residents to a community research planning workshop.
Taking place this Friday and Saturday, it will be a two-day workshop at the Fort St. John Legion, to discuss health research in northeastern BC.
The research group has identified five key topics to be discussed, including Outdoor Air Quality, Recruitment and retention in rural communites, wellness for transient workers, rural family and women’s health, and knowledge translation.
Medical Officer for the Northeast, Dr. Charl Badenhorst says the workshop will allow health officials to determine what areas of research should be pursued.
