Peer Health Educators
East Carolina University's peer health educators are a diverse group of students who are trained to teach fellow students about pertinent health issues in a positive, interactive and nonjudgmental manner. Topics range from alcohol and other drugs, smoking cessation, sexuality programming, nutrition/body image/eating disorders, stress management, and more.
Peer health educators can receive academic credit (HLTH 2500) as an elective or can join the Healthy PIRATES
student organization to receive the training and participate in campus programming efforts. Look for peer health educators creatively promoting health around campus! And be sure to join the ECU Healthy PIRATES Facebook page
