The Center for Health Education and Promotion is eager to collaborate with students, student organizations, and other departments on health-related events and programming. We offer potential co-sponsorship and other forms of support, even as simple as educational materials on a particular health issue for your event. If your organization or department is planning a health-related event and is looking for ideas or resources, you are encouraged to discuss it with a Center for Health Education and Promotion staff member early in your planning stages in order to see how we might be of assistance. To set up a meeting, please call the Center for Health Education and Promotion at (414) 288-5217.
PEER HEALTH EDUCATION
The Peer Health Education program at Marquette University’s Center for Health Education and Promotion facilitates discussion about health issues between and among MU students and their surrounding community. The Peer Health Educators (PHEs) are a team of responsible student leaders who provide health-related programming, and serve the community as health resources in order to enhance the well being of their peers. The Peer Health Educators are Marquette University students who are prepared with the knowledge and skills necessary to promote an understanding of health issues affecting themselves and their peers.
The Center for Health Education & Promotion is currently seeking hardworking, creative, and extremely motivated students to be part of the 2013-2014 Peer Health Education team. PHE applications will be available in the Center for Health Education & Promotion (707 Building, First Floor). All applications are due no later than 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 17, 2013. If you have any questions regarding the application process, please call Amy at x8-5217 or visit our website at http://www.marquette.edu/healthed
STUDENT HEALTH ADVISORY BOARD
The Student Health Advisory Board is an advisory body for Marquette's Student Health Service (SHS).
The Board works to ensure the satisfaction and quality of health care at Marquette by voicing student concerns to the administration of Student Health Service. Its members are responsible for representing the needs, opinions and ideas of students; evaluating proposed budgets; recommending changes in services, and participating in the publicity and marketing of Student Health Service. For more details, please visit the Student Health Advisory Board page.
Spark, formerly the Marquette University Tobacco Coalition, was founded in the 2008 fall semester by a Peer Health Educator and the Center for Health Education and Promotion. Spark’s charge is to collect and/or review data on support for a tobacco-free campus; propose changes to policies to support Marquette becoming a tobacco-free campus; implement an enforcement plan for current policies; educate about the risk associated with tobacco use; and educate about cessation service and resources on campus and in the community. The overall goal of Spark is to obtain BACCHUS Certification by becoming tobacco-free campus and to promote students and staff live a tobacco-free lifestyle. Spark is made up of students, staff, and administration. Spark meetings are open to all members of the Marquette Community.
