Many cultural backgrounds inform BC Healthy Connections study

April 20, 2020
Participants in the BC Healthy Connections Project have a variety of cultural backgrounds. While more than half (57%) identify as “white,” more than a quarter (27%) identify as Indigenous. Other backgrounds include Latin-American, South Asian and Filipina — with many people describing a mix of backgrounds. Most participants reported English as their first language — in keeping with the study’s eligibility criteria requiring conversational competence in English.
