Health Peers

Health Peers work with the Health Promotion team at Health & Counselling to support student health and well-being on campus through free events and workshops. 

Health Peers are trained to host outreach events and share health information on topics such as:

  • Sexual health
  • Responsible partying
  • Social connectedness
  • Stress management
  • Nutrition
  • Active living
  • Healthy environments
  • Positive body image

Check out their outreaches and events below!

Your well-being is important to us, especially during this time. We're shifting our efforts online so that we can still share health education tips and connect with you in a different way! Stay tuned for more information.

The Health Peers started a podcast series named "Thriving with the Health Peers". The latest episode talks about how physical activity can benefit sleep, stress, energy/mood, and mental health.
