Participate in research

Research is fundamental for creating a healthy future for all, but it isn’t just microscopes and molecules!

Right now, evidence for kids is limited and we need clinical research to expand the evidence for the best treatments for children.

Your participation in child health research will improve healthcare for children across the country.


We are currently recruiting youth and families to participate in the following studies*.

DREAM – Redesigning healthy living for kids

Participants will be asked to join small group sessions on lifestyle behaviour and mental health. All sessions will be online – about 2-3 times a week for 16 weeks.
