The Peer Health Education program promotes healthy choices and lifestyles through educating and empowering the campus community on a variety of health related topics. Peer Health Educators serve as a resource, referral agent and role model for their peers. They are responsible for providing positive, interactive fun and non-judgmental programming and education aimed at providing their peers with information to make healthy, informed decisions regarding their health and wellbeing.   In order to work as a PHE at Skidmore, students need to first complete an in-depth training course (HF-215). Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and the course is offered every semester. More information can be found at:
