QuaranTEENing Survey Opportunity

Hello hello! If you’re between the ages of 13 and 19, and are looking for something to do while social distancing, check out this chance to win a $250 prize! 

The Human Environments Analysis Laboratory Youth Advisory Council (HEALYAC) at Western University is conducting a survey on how teenagers across Canada are affected by physical distancing. Specifically, the HEALYAC wants to know more about how the health and wellbeing of teens is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, so that they can shape future policies and health promotion campaigns. 

The study is called “QuaranTEENing: Understanding the impacts of physical distancing on the health and habits of Teens”, and you can find it at quaranteening.ca. It should be about 10-20 minutes long, and for every 800 responses, participants will be entered into a draw for a $250 prize. For more detailed information, you can also see the full notice below. Happy survey-ing!

Our team at the Human Environments Analysis Laboratory Youth Advisory Council (HEALYAC) at Western University (London, Ontario, Canada) is currently working to research the impacts of physical distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic on the health and wellbeing of Teens.

The HEAL is a multi-disciplinary research institution that undertakes community-based research to improve the health and well-being of children and youth. Our mission is to integrate youth voices, perspectives, and expertise into HEAL projects to conduct more meaningful, youth-informed research.

We have launched a study called “QuaranTEENing: Understanding the impacts of physical distancing on the health and habits of Teens”. We are seeking teens from across Canada to complete a 10-20 minute survey. For every 800 responses, participants will be entered into a draw for a $250 prize!

Our goal is to engage teens of all backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to ensure our results are grounded in evidence that accounts for teens’ diverse experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. This project will make a critical contribution to research involving the health and wellbeing of teens by informing future policy recommendations and health promotion campaigns.

Both English and French versions of the survey are available to participants. 

Here is the link to the survey: www.quaranteening.ca

Our survey is only live until the end of September. We have already started actively promoting the survey on [the] youth advisory council Instagram page (@heal.yac). Check it out!

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Kind regards,
The HEALYAC
