What is Peer Education?

Peer education is a popular approach to health and wellness promotion,harnessing the power of social interaction and influence to encourage healthier choices.  Student Wellness uses evidence based strategies to maximize the potential of these groups.

Student Wellness Peer Education Philosophy

Student Wellness seeks to create social change towards a healthy and safe community that fosters student well-being and success. Acknowledging the profound impact of peer education, Student Wellness makes a conscious effort to actively engage students in peer education programming. It is the goal of Student Wellness to provide optimal instrumental support (i.e. financial assistance, material goods, or services) and informational support (i.e. advice, guidance or suggestions) for all students who want to better educate their peers on health and wellness issues.
