Peer health groups to which students may apply are:
Each group consists of 15-25 student members who are trained in the issues specific to the group's mission. SHAB members do not conduct educational workshops, unlike the other groups. Rather, SHAB serves as a consumer-advocacy group which shapes Student Health Service policies and procedures.
The program is voluntary and does not provide pay or academic credit. The program is competitive--not all applicants get accepted.
Applicants do not need previous expertise in the issue of the group to which they apply, but they must demonstrate a willingness to learn health information and facilitation/advocacy skills. Previous facilitation, advocacy, or activism experience is a plus.
Applications may be picked-up after April 1 in the Office of Health Education, 310 Houston Hall.
Deadline for submitting applications is Friday, April 12 at 5 p.m. Applicants must attend a 30-minute interview during the week of April 15. Decisions about applicants will be made no later than Wednesday, April 24.
If you have questions about the peer health application process, please contact the Office of Health Education, 310 Houston Hall, at 573- 3525 or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
