Peer Health Educators

Our goal is to have open discussions on a variety of issues by providing information and educating on general wellness, sexual health, mental health as well as social issues.


PHE stands for Peer Health Educator. The PHE program is housed with Student Health & Counseling Services at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, and affiliated with the nation-wide BACCHUS and GAMMA Peer Education Network.

The program is based on a philosophy of wellness aimed at education students on current health and social issues through a positive peer model approach.
