Peer Health Educators- Health Movement

Who are Peer Health Educators?

Health Movement stands is a Recognized Student Organization at Georgia College that provides information and awareness to students about college health topics. Peer educators serve as role models to the GC campus who make healthy choices and encourage healthy and positive choices in the lives of others. Throughout the year, Health Movement hosts many information tables and events that are always free for students. Major events include: Food for Thought, Alcohol and Other Drug Awareness, Sexual Responsibility Week, Safe Spring Break, Highway Safety, and various Mental Health Awareness Days. Health Movement members have training each month on specific college health topics and then create campaigns and information tables to relay those messages to their peers. 

Health Movement is open to all GC students interested in becoming a campus wellness leader. All majors are welcome to participate. The time commitment is roughly six hours per month. Health Movement members learn valuable leadership, interpersonal, public speaking, and life skills through their participation in the organization.
