The 2013 BC Adolescent Health Survey has been in schools since January 2013 and the majority of participating school districts have completed or are nearing completion of survey collection. It is anticipated that when the last survey is completed over 27,000 students in grade 7-12 will have filled out a survey.
We are indebted to the nurses who are administering the survey, the school staff who are supporting the process and to the students who are answering the survey questions.
Parents and students: If your school has not yet taken part and you would like more information before deciding please click here to watch a video made by young people about the survey or for additional information.
The McCreary Centre Society is a non-government not-for-profit committed to improving the health of BC youth through research, education and community based projects. Founded in 1977, the Society sponsors and promotes a wide range of activities and research to identify and address the health needs of young people in the province.
The society takes its name from the late Dr. J.F. McCreary, a pediatrician and medical administrator, whose leadership in promoting inter-professional teaching and multi-disciplinary approaches in health care set a standard that the society seeks to emulate.
