Peer wellness education

The Hamline Peer Wellness Education program is dedicated to fostering student-to-student communication about common health concerns that arise during college, and proactively promoting student wellness. Peer wellness educators specialize in areas of mental health, nutrition, sexual health, relationships, and decisions around drug and alcohol use. 

Serving as a peer wellness educator is a great opportunity for students interested in a future career in healthcare, or for anyone who is simply interested in personal health and well-being.
