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 get to work with great individuals. I'm also able to really share my ideas and work with others to see a final product that we've worked on together to promote health and wellness on our campus. I joined the PHE program because I have a strong interest in public health and wanted to help my community lead healthier and happier lifestyles." Doug '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

"I chose to become a PHE because it was a great opportunity to become a part of a leadership team that shared my love of health. Being a PHE has not only provided me with a unique skill set and a great experience, but it has also allowed me to meet a group of amazing individuals that have become family." - Nick '18
