Introducing our Youth Advisory Council!

Are you a high school student? Are you interested in developing your leadership skills? Do you want to be involved with youth research in your community? If so, we want to hear from you!

The HEALab at Western University have been developing a Youth Advisory Council (HEAL YAC) that will include high school students from London, Ontario and surrounding areas. Through this council, we hope to involve youth voices, perspectives, and expertise in our research.

In developing the HEALYAC, we strive to work closer with our community and partners to give youth a greater opportunity to participate in leadership roles as research advisers and health advocates. Our goal is to develop our research with and for the youth of our community!

We are looking for a diverse and inclusive group of 10 to 14 students to join our Youth Advisory Council.

If this opportunity interests you, please visit our website at and apply before September 28, 2018!
