Education

OUR MISSION

The Health Education Office was established in 2002 and commissioned with the task to Engage, Educate, and  Empower students on how to make wise choices when it comes to alcohol & tobacco use, healthy relationships & eating.

Peer Health is managed by Ismael Torres, UNK Counseling & Health Care’s Multimedia Specialist and a team of student volunteers who are excited about making a difference on campus.
