Who we are.
PHE stands for Peer Health Educator, which is a student employment position here at Parkside. PHEs undergo training and are dedicated to encouraging fellow students to learn and reflect on various health and wellness topics.
What we do.
Peer Health Educators strive to bridge the gap between students and campus resources through open discussions and by providing information on a variety of health and wellness topics to fellow students.

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.
Request a Program
PHEs are always excited to spread health and wellness knowledge to our campus and beyond! We can provide material for programs on a variety of topics, including (but not limited to) alcohol and drugs, sexual health, body image, stress relief, preventative health, suicide awareness, and nutrition.
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.
Which form should I submit?
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.
