The easy way to ask the hard questions. Peer Health Educators (PHEs) provide casual, non-judgmental spaces and empower students (ie, YOU) with health information you can trust in a confidential, one-on-one environment. If you want to talk to someone about health questions and concerns, talk to a PHE today! Schedule a session online using the HealthyHoos patient portal (login using your Netbadge ID information.) Once you're logged in, select "Appointment" and then "Office of Health Promotion." Choose "Peer Health: XX (Telehealth)."
Topics covered during Spring 2021 include Thrive (Mental Health & Covid-19) and Nutrition.
>> Thrive includes a virtual walkthrough of wellbeing.virginia.edu.
