Peer Health Education Program
What is a Peer Health Educator?
The mission of the Peer Health Education (PHE) Program is to provide an effective peer network to encourage, support, and advance healthful living for all SCU students. As a PHE, you will have the unique opportunity to learn the most current information on a variety of health-related topics including general wellness, eating disorders, body image, nutrition, stress management, alcohol and substance abuse, and healthy relationships. In addition, PHEs will be trained to facilitate interactive presentations, discussions, workshops, and health education events for SCU students within the RLCs, classrooms, and student organizations. PHEs will gain important leadership skills, develop teaching and public speaking skills, and have the opportunity to work with other students and campus staff and faculty. We welcome all SCU students regardless of major or class year, although the PHEs have historically been undergraduate students.
