have the ability to develop skills in leadership, public speaking, peer-to-peer
information sharing, outreach, marketing and evaluation. If you are interested
in being a peer health educator, email Fadyia.Lowe@uky.edu for more information.
Our peer health educators cover a variety of topics
including tobacco cessation, nutrition, body image, stress management and sexual
health. To schedule a peer health education program for your residence hall,
