Adult Health Study

COVID-19 Updates

We hope you are safe and well. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have paused all testing for the time being. However, once the restrictions lift we will resume testing and recruitment. If you are interested in participating, please email us at adulthealth.fasd@ubc.ca and we will let you know as soon as we can start running our study again. 

Thank you for your patience during this time!
