Peer Health Education

Peer Health Education is a program that promotes positive health behaviours and lifestyle choices to support physical and mental wellness and academic success. 

Volunteer Peer Health Educators work together to plan and implement health campaigns to promote on- and off-campus resources to students. Follow us @UWHealthyU for health and wellness tips and campus events.
