Monthly Podcasts

Cultural Appropriation vs. Appreciation | 10.29.20

In our October podcast, we discussed the differences between cultural appropriation and appreciation — a special conversation in lieu of Halloween. Peer Health Educators Jonathan Ochoa and Marisol Díaz Flores led the conversation with students Hannah Geaslin and Liana Lopez.

National Women’s Health & Fitness Day | 09.30.20

In our September podcast, PHE wanted to celebrate National Women's Health and Fitness Day on September 30th by interviewing one of Parkside's female athletes. Peer Health Educators Jonathan Ochoa and Marisol Díaz Flores interviewed Megan Aliverti, a softball player for UW-Parkside.

The Wellness Wheel

The Wellness Wheel illustrates a wellness model with nine dimensions:  emotional, occupational, interpersonal, spiritual, physical, financial, intellectual, environmental, and cultural. All of the dimensions are interconnected and important to a well-rounded and balanced lifestyle.

Peer Health Educators use the Wellness Wheel to guide our conversations with fellow students, to present meaningful programs to groups, and to connect individuals with resources on campus.

Collaborate on an Event

PHEs make great collaborators. As an organization made up of energetic and experienced members, we are sure to bring added value and a unique perspective to your event. We look forward to collaborating with you and your organization on a successful event. 

Request form

The difference between requesting a program and collaborating on an event centers on the level of participation and presence of the PHE team. 

If you are looking just for an educational piece to add to your event, please request a program.

If you want PHEs to provide more than just the educational piece, please request a collaboration on an event.

If you are unsure, please reach out to us.
