Health Promotion

Health Education and Promotion seeks to empower students to achieve optimal health and well-being by promoting intentional healthy lifestyles and encouraging students to make informed decisions about their health and wellness behaviors. We strive to create a campus culture which encourages and supports a healthy campus and learning environment.

They are highly trained and vital to the well-being here at CSUSB. PHEs work under the supervision of the professional Health Education staff.
