Peer Health & Wellness Educators (PHWEs)

Peer Health Educators

The Peer Health & Wellness Educators (PHWEs) are a diverse group of IU students trained to make a positive impact on the lives of their fellow college students.  Through health promotion and education, the PHWE students challenge their peers to improve their overall health and wellness through positive, interactive and fun health outreach programs.

Comprehensive training prepares the PHWEs to facilitate dynamic outreach programs; encourage physical, mental, and emotional health; serve as a healthy role model to other students; create informative awareness events; and promote community support to create a healthy campus culture.
