Foundry is forging a new, province-wide culture of care by developing a provincial network of centres and online tools and resources for youth aged 12 to 24 — co-created with over 120 health and social service partners, young people, and families in communities across BC. Foundry brings health and social services together in a single place to make it easier for young people to find the care, connection, and support they need. We are committed to changing lives, communities, and our systems, because young people are our future.
Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital in the Hurlburt Auditorium on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.
