Tulane University Peer Health Educators (TUPHEs)

Tulane University Peer Health Educators (TUPHEs) are a diverse group of Tulane students who are committed to enhancing their own health and the health of the Tulane community. The purpose of the program is to advocate for and promote healthy choices, personal well-being, and community safety. Through leadership, education, and awareness peer educators provide quality, innovative, and inclusive workshops, services, and events to meet the health needs of Tulane students.
