The Peer Health University Network (PHUN) is a student-based group whose purpose is to promote healthy behaviors and practices to fellow California State University, Fullerton students and assist with programs provided by the Health Education and Promotion Department. Peer Health Educators (PHE’s) are trained to provide presentations and coordinate campus outreach events on a variety of health topics affecting our college campus today, including reproductive health, alcohol, tobacco and other drug information, nutrition, physical fitness, stress management and mental health, as well as general health and wellness.
PHUN is involved in a number of educational and outreach activities on campus. These activities include, but are not limited to: health-specific classroom presentations, program planning, implementation and evaluation, development of health marketing campaigns, campus health fairs, workshops and small conferences, and general health outreach to campus groups.
Any student enrolled at CSUF, who is in good academic standing can apply to become a member of PHUN. We encourage any student who is interested in health and wellness to join our organization, regardless of their major.
All PHUN members are expected to attend meetings from 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM every Friday during the fall and spring semesters of each academic year. The meetings are held on campus in the KHS building.
The Student Health and Counseling Center will be accepting ten (10) health science practicum students during the Spring 2012 semester. Practicum students earn their hours by attending weekly PHUN meetings on Fridays from 10:00-11:00am, as well as outreach events throughout the semester. To apply, fill out this application and return it to the front desk of the Student Health and Counseling Center by Friday, February 3, 2012.
