Organization

MoHealth Peer Health Educators(PHE) is a peer education group dedicated to providing accurate health information, fostering open and safe environments, debunking assumptions, and reaching out to the diverse communities of Mount Holyoke College
 

The group's  goal is to help students develop the tools needed to make more informed choices and to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. They actively engage students in the topic areas of alcohol and other drugs, violence prevention, sexual health, and wellness (stress, sleep, positive body image, healthy eating)  through workshops, interactive tabling, online campaigns, and campus events.

Peer Health Educators are student volunteers that are affiliated with and supported by College Health Services. The Coordinator of Health Education and Graduate Assistant act as advisors to the group.

What Peer Health Educators are saying...

I learned so much from my peers in the group! It’s such an open, collaborative space. I also love getting to give back to my campus community by providing health education and fun activities. I feel so privileged to be in a group that gets so much education from experts. I have learned so much.

 It is an incredible opportunity to have an ongoing evolving conversation about health-related topics that are important to MHC students, a great way to engage with other passionate students on topics that benefit the greater student body. The program is a huge leadership growth opportunity.

 The best part about being a PHE is being able to interact with the community in a way that is fun and informative. I love being able to give people more tools to lead healthier lives.
