The Student Health Educators (SHEs) are a group of Amherst students sponsored by the Department of Health Education that are interested in actively addressing health issues and building skills in the Amherst Community to improve their Health and Wellbeing. SHEs are trained to provide interactive and engaging programs and events, engage in outreach to their peers, develop innovative initiatives to reach their peers on important health information and skills. The SHEs cover a wide variety of topics including: healthy sexuality, alcohol and other drugs, sleep, the body, stress and more. They respond to emerging health issues and topics of interest to Amherst College students.
SHEs are available to listen, advise and educate on a broad range of health topics. To see our current Student Health Educators, please visit our Meet the SHEs page.
The SHEs run a range of workshops on a variety of health-related topics, including sexual health, nutrition, alcohol & other drugs, sleep & stress, and more. For additional information or to request a workshop, please click here.
