Peer Health Educators (PHEs) are a diverse group of Cal Maritime students trained to educate their classmates about college lifestyle and wellness issues in a positive, interactive, fun, and non-judgmental manner.

Comprehensive training prepares PHEs to facilitate dynamic outreach programs; encourage physical, mental, and spiritual health; create informative awareness events; and promote community support to create a healthy campus culture. PHEs are dedicated to providing education and community support with sensitivity to race, gender, sexual orientation, culture, religion, and individual capabilities.
