Peer Health Educators

The New York Institute of Technology Peer Health Educators are student leaders who work collaboratively to support the health and wellness of the campus and the greater community through education, connection and advocacy. This is accomplished by conducting on campus workshops, trainings and leading campaigns on important issues that affect today’s society, such as stress management, mental health, body image, and more.

Some advantages of being a Peer Health Educator include:

  • Enhancing your resume or graduate school application
  • Meeting new friends and engage in fun experiences
  • Contributing to new wellness programs
  • Becoming involved on campus

As a Peer Health Educator, you can:

  • Help or respond to other students non-judgmentally.
  • Enhance public speaking and communication skills.
  • Provide accurate information to other students about a specific topic.
  • Gain experience in mental health awareness and other important wellness issues.
