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: Resilient Royals, Glow & Flow Late Night Yoga, The Fitness Challenge, Mental Health Screenings, Alcohol Awareness Week, Study Smoothly Smoothie Giveaway, and Stress Less Week(s) before Finals!

Not only is CHEW a place for research and the spread of health and wellness knowledge, but it is also the spot to build meaningful friendships.” - Ava ‘25
