The Peer Health Education program through the Marquette University Medical Clinic facilitates discussion about health issues between, and among, MU students and their surrounding community.
The Peer Health Educators (PHEs) are a team of responsible student leaders who provide health-related programming and serve the Marquette community as health resources, in order to enhance the well-being of their peers. Topics addressed by the PHEs include:
The Peer Health Educators invite students to think critically about these and other health issues by raising questions, facilitating discussion, and disseminating health information.
The PHEs provide programs on a variety of health topics that are brought to you in residence halls, student organization meetings, fraternities and sororities, sports team sessions, classes, or to any group of interested students. Here's a partial list of the 2012-13 PHE Outreach Programs.
Main outreach programs run about 30-40 minutes. Grab Bag programs run about 15 minutes, and can easily be added onto the end of a meeting or gathering.
To request a program, please email your request. *Note: To ensure that we have enough time to secure presenters, please make requests at least 7 business days before the desired program date.
