The Peer Health Educators (PHEs) are a diverse group of students trained to educate their residential commons and campus community about college lifestyle and wellness issues in a positive, interactive, fun, and nonjudgmental manner.
Comprehensive training prepares the PHEs to provide confidential patient education sessions; facilitate dynamic outreach programs; encourage physical, mental, and spiritual health; create informative awareness events; and promote community support to create a healthy campus culture. The Peer Health Educators are dedicated to providing education and community support with sensitivity to race, gender, sexual orientation, culture, religion, and individual capabilities.
