Peer Health and Wellness Educators

Help improve health and wellness

Our Peer Health and Wellness Educators (PHWEs) are a diverse group of IU students who facilitate health promotion outreach education and programming to their peers to improve their overall health and wellness. They achieve this mission by conducting positive, skills-based, and interactive educational programs and campuswide events.

As a PHWE, you’ll work alongside health promotion professionals to gain experience and information about sexual and reproductive health, stress management, nicotine and vaping cessation, nutrition and relationship education, and alcohol and other substances.

If you become a PHWE, you must enroll in an academic training course the first semester, and the second semester you’ll complete at least one to two hours per week dedicated to health education field experience. You’ll not only build your resume—you’ll also earn course credit!

Have questions or want more information? Come visit us on the third floor of the Health Center or contact Heather Eastman-Mueller.
