I would like to participate
The CCRD is connected to REACH BC, an online platform that connects British Columbians to health research opportunities. Individuals in the registry over the age of 16 and with a valid email address will be sent a link to register for REACH BC automatically; however individuals can choose whether they want to register or not.
There are many opportunities for people with or without COVID-19 to participate in research. There are a number of ongoing research projects studying different aspects of COVID-19 including efficacy of treatment, impact on mental health, and sample collection and testing.
