Peer Health Educators


Who We Are

Positive | Inclusive | Empowering

The Peer Health Educators (PHEs) are a diverse group of 70 UVA students trained to empower their peers to practice holistic health and well-being in a positive, supportive, interactive, and nonjudgmental manner.

Comprehensive training prepares the PHEs to facilitate dynamic outreach programs; to guide confidential patient education sessions; to plan and implement evidence-informed awareness events; and to promote a healthy and inclusive culture at UVA.
