On May 5, 2020, MSFHR and the Vancouver Foundation will host the fourth annual Health xChange asking: How can youth-led and youth-engaged approaches help to re-define research? Using a PechaKucha format (20 slides, shown for 20 seconds each), presenters will share stories about how their youth-engaged research can improve health outcomes for young people.
We are inviting presentations from across the full spectrum of BC health research. Topics might include, but are not limited to:
- Creative ways of ensuring a more vibrant diversity of youth voices are heard.
- Considering different forms of knowledge (e.g. Indigenous storytelling).
- Youth-based participatory action research to address inequities and access to health.
- Methods for conducting or sharing research that address power imbalances.
Do you have a story to share? Check out our Call for Presenters and submit a 200-word overview or 2-3 minute video to KT@msfhr.org by February 28, 2020.
Submissions should outline:
- What health / health equity issues you addressed.
- What changes were you hoping to make, and what changes you achieved.
- Lessons learned.
- Your contact information and where we might find further information about you, your project and organization.
