“What do Peer Health Educators (PHEs) do?”
PHEs facilitate educational workshops that give students a space to talk about health issues, learn the facts on health, and develop the skills needed to be healthy. PHEs also host events like Sextravaganza, partner with residence halls and student groups for health events, help craft health policy, create web content, and more!

“Wait, is that a backwards way of saying you preach abstinence?”
Not at all. Our workshops focus on how health behaviors affect physiology, and, if someone makes the choice to engage in those behaviors, how to do so in a less risky way.
