Opportunity: UW Peer Health Education

Do you have a passion for sexual health, mental health, or drug education?  If so, the UW Peer Health Education program may be for you!  We are currently recruiting for 2014-2015 peer health educators and welcome students from all majors and backgrounds to apply.
The Peer Health Educators are a group of student volunteers dedicated to encouraging healthier decisions by educating the UW community through presentations and other events.  This includes everything from presentations with the UW Greek community to being on Sexpert panels.

The program’s scope is focused on the most common issues related to student health:             

  • healthy relationships/relationship violence
  • sexual assault
  • mental health/suicide intervention
  • alcohol and other drugs

Here is the link to the 2014-2015 PHE application: https://catalyst.uw.edu/webq/survey/tiffhou/223985.  It is due on March 7th and we will follow up the next week with further information and next steps.  There are 2 information sessions you may attend if you are interested in learning more:

  • Wednesday March 5, 5:30-6:30
  • Thursday March 6, 5:00-6:00

Both sessions will be located in 109 Elm Hall (located next to the West Campus Fitness Center). If you are interested in attending a session, please email Tiffany at uwphe@uw.edu with the session you are interested in.  You can also select an option in the PHE application.

Please note that spring training will take place spring quarter from 4:30-6pm on Thursdays.  This is required for all PHEs. There is also an option to receive 1-2 credits (TBD).

Please feel free to email the PHEs at any time at uwphe@uw.edu
