Douglas College > Student Life > Get Experience > Leadership Programs > Peer Health Educators
We are a group of students who are keen to spread health and wellness education to our peers at Douglas College. The group uses a variety of fun and innovative strategies to promote health on campus, including large campus events, workshops, and campaigns, to one on one sessions.
The program exists to promote overall health and wellness, while aligning awareness and knowledge to current issues that are relevant to the student population.
The Peer Health Education program would not be possible without a team of dedicated volunteers. During the fall and winter semesters Peer Health Educators commit 2-4 hours per week. They receive support from the Wellness Lead and the Recreation and Wellness Coordinator. Full training days take place in August (for fall semester) and December (for winter semester).
