What Do Peer Health Educators Do?
Each week the students meet to discuss relevant health issues on campus and plan programs to address these issues. Students are required to participate in 30 hours of outreach activities each semester. Topics for outreach range from stress management, sexual health, nutrition, alcohol and other drugs, and physical activity to name a few. LEARN MORE AT GET INVOLVED
Peer Health Educator Programs
Find the Peer Health Educators (PHEs) in the Library Café on a weekly basis promoting health and wellness on a variety of topics, where students can engage with the PHEs, ask questions, and learn about the topic of the week. Some topics include healthy sleeping behaviors, health benefits of journaling, safer spring break, and many other topics.
Free Barrier Friday
The PHEs promote safer sex by providing free access to barrier methods in Frank on Fridays during lunchtime, such as outer condoms, inner condoms, dental dams, and lube.
Weekly Health Tip
The PHEs put together health tips that focus on small, simple behaviors that can make large impacts on health and well-being, which are posted weekly outside of Shaw. Some of these include "Healthy Snack Ideas," "7 Ways to Reduce Stress," and "Surviving Spring Allergies."
