Peer Health Education
The Peer Health Education Team
Who we are: CHEW's team of Peer Health Educators are role models, educators, advocates, teammates and friends. CHEW's nationally certified Peer Health Educators (PHE's) are trained leaders and agents of change, working to promote individual well-being and a healthy campus community!
Team members design and implement campus-wide health promotion campaigns and programs on alcohol and other drugs, stress management, self-care, mindfulness, sleep, nutrition and other relevant health & wellness topics. Classroom presentations, outdoor events, and "pop-up" giveaway promotions, including our famous Wellness Wagon, are just a few ways our team promotes health in mind, body and spirit.
Join us at our annual team events including: Royal T.A.P.S., Glow & Flow Late Night Yoga, The Fitness Challenge, Depression Screenings, Alcohol Awareness Week, Study Smoothly Smoothie Giveaway, and Stress Less Week(s) before Finals!

Here's what current PHEs have to say:
“I love being a PHE because I get to be a part of a group of hardworking, friendly people who constantly push each other and everyone on campus to be healthier and happier. Being a PHE has definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to develop as a leader and as a person.” – Cory ’20
“I joined PHE because of my passion for fostering happier and healthier lives . I love being a PHE because I have been able to work with incredible individuals and bond as a team while promoting health and wellness on our campus." - Julia '19
