Health Promotion Services
Health promotion and education services are also pre-paid as part of tuition and fees. Services include educational materials, health consulting visits, special events, outreach presentations, and patient education, along with information and referral services. All of these health promotion services are provided by either professional staff or specially trained students called Peer Health Educators.
Professional staff and Peer Health Educators (PHEs) provide University and community outreach presentations on a variety of health and wellness related issues.
