Peer Health Educator
What is a Peer Educator?
Peer Health Educators are students at Lasell College helping to educate their peers about health issues affecting college students. Peer Health Educators volunteer their time to educate peers through coordinating peer health education programs, such as alcohol and drug awareness, sexual assault awareness, sexual health, healthy relationships and more.
Peer Health Educators also help coordinate health events, theme days, discussion groups, interactive programs, and help out in the Health Education Office by developing promotional materials, distributing handouts, and doing administrative tasks.
