Since joining SARAVYC in October 2011, Rob has done many interesting studies on the health of marginalized youth in BC. Studies have included compiling data on the health status of young men in BC, examining the influence that increased transience has on street-involved youth health risk behaviours and differences in health risk behaviours between sexually exploited and non-exploited urban young men in Vancouver among numerous others. SARAVYC has provided a supportive arena for exploring new and exciting research topics that continually increase his knowledge in mixed-methods approaches to research questions. His current dissertation is focused on the effect that school connectedness has on street-involved youth’s health risk behaviours and access to health care services. This dissertation is supervised by Dr. Elizabeth Saewyc from UBC School of Nursing and Dr. Jim Frankish from UBC School of Population and Public Health.
