Peer Health Education

Peer Health Education Student Leaders at Lasell University

Who we Are

Peer Health Educators are Lasell University students raising awareness on campus around issues such as:

  • Mental Health and Wellness
  • Sexual Health and Education
  • Sexual Assault and Intimate Partner Violence Prevention
  • and Alcohol and Substance Use Safety

Peer Health Educators are trained throughout the year to be informed about issues that affect college students so that they may be a resource to their peers. Working within the Office of Health Education, we strive to create a health-conscious culture within the Lasell community, as well as an awareness of preventative health strategies that can last a lifetime.
