Program sessions are by video or phone!
We know it can be difficult to travel at the best of times, let alone during a pandemic. Because of this, we developed the COACH Health Promotion program to be delivered remotely, by video conference call or telephone to you in the comfort of your own home.
Almost definitely if you're 65+!
We welcome you to join the COACH Program Study if you are 65 years or older, live in the community, and have access to a telephone or video conference software. There is NO COST, and you will receive a small stipend for your participation.
You will be asked to complete a questionnaire before the COACH progam begins. Once you have completed your questionnaire you begin the program and receive six 30-45 minute sessions with a UBC MD student coach over 2 months to discuss your health goals and create plans to work towards them.
