When people receive an invitation letter to join the BC Generations Project, they often want to know more. Thanks to a Nanaimo resident who contacted the Simi Sara Show on CKNW AM980, our own Dr. John Spinelli recently got the opportunity to share our story with listeners. Hear his eight-minute interview with host Simi Sara about the research goals of the BC Generations Project, the information we’re collecting from participants, and what people need to know about our privacy and confidentiality procedures.

Thanks to fantastic support from Fraser Valley residents, the BC Generations Project’s pop-up assessment centre in Abbotsford has been a huge success. By the time we close our doors on March 15, almost 1,200 new participants will have visited our assessment centre. We recently welcomed BC’s Health Minister Michael de Jong to tour our facility and meet a project participant (with video).
From Wednesday, February 15th to mid-March, the BC Generations Project will be recruiting participants through its Fraser Valley Assessment Centre at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre. To book your appointment, call 1-877-675-8221.
The results are in for the BC Generations Project’s recruitment activities in 2011. More than 10,000 British Columbians stepped forward last year and generously donated their time for cancer prevention!
Here are two photos of the dedicated team who make the BC Generations Project a success – the folks who answer the phones, organize our assessment centres, and manage the data and samples we receive. From all of us to all of you… Happy New Year!
Are you gearing down for a winter break? So are we! Our call centre will be closed from Dec 19 to January 2nd, but you can still sign up online throughout the holiday season.
