What can Peer Health Educators provide?

The HAWKS Peer Health Educators present programs on a variety of requested health related topics to student groups, residence halls, and academic classes (see Programs). Alcohol is a pervasive issue on college campuses and our programs addressing healthy lifestyles, sexual decision making, and bystander intervention include a component addressing the impact of alcohol use, how to determine what is low risk, and how to get help for a yourself or a friend.

  • Student organizations or other groups looking for an event co-sponsor.
