The application period for the Fall 2017 Peer Health and Wellness Educator (PHWE) program is now open through November 15.
The PHWE program trains student leaders to work on a variety of health and wellness programs that focus on five main areas of health outreach:
- Alcohol and Drug Awareness
- Nutrition Education
- Tobacco Cessation
- Sexual Health Promotion
- Stress Management
PHWE students challenge their peers to improve their overall health and wellness through positive, interactive, and fun health outreach programs.
“We currently have a diverse group of students who are not only conducting amazing outreach, but coming up with their own innovative ideas to add to our current health outreach programs,” said Aran Mordor, program coordinator.
Comprehensive training for those selected will take place throughout the Spring 2017 semester. The training will prepare students to facilitate dynamic outreach programs; encourage physical, mental, and emotional health; serve as a healthy role models to other students; create informative awareness events; and promote community support to create a healthy campus culture.
The opportunities are endless when joining the team. Students will acquire work experience as representatives for our health promotion on campus while building leadership skills and bulking up their resume.
Students can apply directly online on the program’s website and will be contacted for follow up interviews.
