PEER HEALTH EDUCATION
Empowering students to commit to their health and wellness through peer education
What We Do
Our Peer Health Educators (PHEs) are essential in disseminating health & wellness information to the U of U campus community. We work within an area of wellness (i.e., sexual wellness, harm reduction, violence prevention, mental wellness) to develop and implement relevant programming for our peers. We collaborate in small and larger teams to create meaningful ways for students to think about their health and wellness. Some of these ways include:
- Facilitating educational workshops, discussions, and presentations
- Assisting with creation of health education marketing content
- Staffing mobile STI Testing Clinics
- Serving as a wellness resource for peers
- Participating in planning events and annual campaigns
