PATH (Peer Advocates Teaching Health), is the only certified peer education group on the TWU campus. Who better to discuss health topics with than your peers?! PATH educators develop communication, research, and teamwork skills as they engage their fellow TWU Pioneers in a variety of health and wellbeing activities to create a healthier campus. You can find PATH members on campus educating about sexual health, healthy relationships, drugs and alcohol, impaired driving, bystander intervention, nutrition, and stress management.
For information on upcoming programs, follow @HealthyTWU on Twitter and Instagram. To request PATH to present to your group, complete our program request form. If you would like more information on how to schedule presentations or any questions regarding membership, please email PATH.
PATH recruitment will be online for the Spring 2020 semester. If you are interested in becoming a Certified Peer Educator, please fill out the PATH application.
