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.
