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
