Peer health educators present workshops on topics such as power dynamics in relationships, sex and communication, sex role stereotypes, dating behaviors, prevention strategies, etc. Presentations target the campus community including residence hall groups, social and Greek organizations, and other interested groups of students, staff, and faculty.
