What is a Peer Health Educator? 

CWRU Peer Health Educators (PHE) are students who are committed to creating a culture of wellness within the CWRU community. The purpose of the program is to advocate for and promote health choices, personal well-being and community safety through leadership, education, and awareness. Peer Health Educators provide workshops services, and events to meet the health and wellness needs of CWRU students.
