In collaboration with UBC SEEDS, the purpose of our project is to explore and understand the perceived cultural, gender-based, and social barriers to physical activity for UBC students self-identifying as female and Chinese (including Taiwanese, Hong Kong and Macao). The students’ experiences, ideas, and values will be collected through a focus group session that will last approximately 1.5 hours.
