During the final weekend in January, the Wellness Connection hosted an intensive training to prepare students interested in health and wellness topics to become peer educators. The Wellness Connection’s Peer Education Program serves the campus community by providing presentations to classes, student organizations, and others interested in learning about health and wellness in the BGSU community.

With the help of the current peer educators, participants learned about topics such as alcohol, nutrition, sexually transmitted infections, sexual assault, and many more. They also engaged in general professional development activities, such as impromptu speech making designed to increase their comfort level delivering presentations in front of groups. Ten students, representing a variety of majors, cohorts, and involvement in campus organizations, completed the twelve hour training:  Megan Small, Crystal Alise' Barber, Danielle Trauth-Jurman, Ira King, Patricia Ferber, Annette King, Kristina Roop, Brian Krull, Samuel Polzin, and Anthony Pope. The Wellness Connection is happy to have these students as part of the peer education program and serving as active health advocates in our community.
