Peer Health Educators are current undergraduate and graduate students at UW-Seattle who facilitate peer-to-peer dialogue and learning on a variety of health and wellness topics aimed at promoting life-long behaviors that support health, self-growth, and meaningful connection. PHEs receive in-depth training and work closely with LiveWell staff as they grow their competencies and skills in health promotion and prevention work. These workshops can be requested for your community or group, and are also offered as drop-in events throughout the quarters.

The workshops that Peer Health Educators facilitate are interactive, engaging, and meant to promote learning and dialogue amongst students in a peer-empowered setting.
