Peer Health Exchange

in News and Events
September 5th, 2011

I am writing to introduce you to Peer Health Exchange (PHE), a non-profit organization that is expanding its program at Boston University this fall. PHE’s mission is to give teenagers the knowledge and skills they need to make healthy decisions. We do this by training college students to teach a comprehensive health curriculum in public high schools that lack education.  Last year, we trained 101 volunteers at BU to teach health workshops to nearly 4,000 Boston 9th graders.  This year, we are excited to recruit our largest group of volunteers yet at BU to help us reach an even greater number of high school students.

Best,

Anya Veremakis
