Everything is Health talk at UBC Learning Circle

Originally posted on the UBC Learning Circle homepage here.
Join Maddie and Nick in conversation about Everything is Health, a podcast they made to summarize current research being done about health on the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. This is part of the UBC Learning Exchange’s Making Research Accessible Initiative, seeking to build respectful and reciprocal relationships between the UBC and DTES communities. Maddie and Nick will reflect on the process of making the podcast and what they learned along the way.
