Tara Cooper is a fourth year undergraduate honours student studying psychology at VIU conducting research under professor Marla Morden, with the aim of better understanding the mental health impacts of pandemic related school changes on children across Canada.

VIU Professor Dr. Leigh Blaney received a $10,000 grant to develop Firefighter Edge, a video game that could help firefighters cope with stress and anxiety experienced on the job.
