Wellness Educators (WE)

Harvard University Health Services (HUHS) is collaborating with the campus community to create a new holistic peer education program for Fall 2021.  A group of undergraduate students will be available in the near future to educate and support students on issues related to overall wellbeing, including drugs and alcohol prevention, sexual health and relationships, physical activity, healthy eating, sleep, and other topics related to cultivating healthy habits and living your best life. 

The Wellness Educators (WE) work to cultivate an empowered Harvard College student body that embraces all aspects of wellbeing. WEs use a multi-dimensional approach to engage students through education and skill-building and collaborate with campus partners to support community wellbeing.
