2023 BC AHS Community Consultations

McCreary is hosting community consultations on Zoom for the 2023 BC Adolescent Health Survey (BC AHS) this fall and winter. Community consultations are a chance to discuss survey items people would like to see included in the 2023 survey.

This includes the current and emerging health issues people are seeing in their schools and communities. For example, from consultations leading up to the 2018 BC AHS, a number of emerging issues were identified for inclusion on the survey, such as the length of students’ school commute, problem gambling, and experiences of time pressure. We would also like to learn more about how the BC AHS data has been used in your community or how you would like it to be used.

Upcoming additional consultation dates on Zoom:
Monday, December 6th (2:00 pm - 3:30 pm, PST): Northern Interior
Tuesday, December 7th (10:00 am - 11:30 am, PST): Northeast
Wednesday, December 8th (2:00 pm - 3:30 pm, PST): Northwest
