The San Jose State University Peer Health Educator’s program is comprised of 36 dedicated Peer Health Educators (PHEs) that aim to enhance the emotional, social, and physical well-being on their campus through the implementation of peer-led health and wellness workshops and educational events. The PHE program borrows from the research on peer-to-peer models to train students to disseminate health messages to the campus community in a positive, interactive, fun, and nonjudgmental manner.
