About Peer Health Education

Classroom, outdoor events, organization meetings and trainings are frequent stops for PHE teams. Our peer health educators are responsible for University of Scranton events including: Royal Taps, The Fitness Challenge, Mental Health Awareness Week, Healthier U Day, Mindful Eating Week Alcohol Awareness Week, and many more!

Here's what current PHEs have to say:
"I love being a PHE leader because I have really bonded with my fellow team members and created fun campus-wide health events. PHE has helped me develop my leadership skills and showed me how important it is to ask for help, and be productive when demands are high." - Mariah '17
"I like being a PHE because I enjoy interacting with students and teaching them about health and wellness. I also love feeling like Oprah when I pass out free items during wellness wagons. Internally I'm like, "you get a stress ball, and you get a stress ball. You all get stress balls!" - Leandra '18
