Become a Peer Health Advocate!

The Peer Health Advocates (PHAs) are a volunteer group of student leaders committed to providing accurate health and wellness information, fostering open and safe environments, debunking assumptions, and supporting the communities at Wesleyan University. PHAs are dedicated to empowering and educating their peers to live balanced lives and aim to highlight the reciprocal relationship between academic success and your health and well-being. PHAs serve as a resource to fellow students by offering warm handoffs and connections to resources and services, both on and off campus while also helping to plan key campus wellness events such as the Sex Carnival, Survivor Solidarity Month, and our Wellness Fair. 

To join the Peer Health Advocate program, please email letting us know why you are interested in becoming a Peer Health Advocate and a copy of your resume and a member of the WesWell staff will be in touch with you soon!
