Peers Educating Peers: Healthy Living at PSU

Faculty Sponsor(s)

Suzanne Gaulocher

Abstract

Peer leaders worked with eleven students to lead small groups of students using a health and wellness curriculum (HealthyCARE® by Genavix, LLC). This pilot project was used to increase student’s knowledge, awareness and implementation of health promotion skills and behaviors that reinforce the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. This pilot project engaged students weekly and individually, in a collaborative approach to deliver education on nutrition, fitness and total well-being practices to promote healthy behaviors in college students in an open and creative environment. Peer health coaches support like- minded students individually in realizing their own wellness goals through a positive, strengths-focused approach. This project is aligned with Healthy PSU's overarching goal of becoming one of the healthiest campus in the nation by 2020.
