Peer Health University Network
What is Peer Health University Network?
Peer Health University Network (PHUN) is a student-based organization 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, mental health, and general health.
What types of activities does the PHUN plan?
PHUN is involved in a number of educational and outreach activities on campus. The PHUN Hut is one of the new additions this year; CSUF students will be exposed to health related topics such as breast cancer, sexual health, alcohol, tobacco, nutritional and stress/sleep throughout the year. Other events include Project Zzz, National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week, World AIDS Day, Nutrition 101 workshops, and the annual health fair.
Who can become a PHUN member?
Any student enrolled at CSUF, who is in good academic standing, can apply to become a member of PHUN. Membership applications are due within the first two weeks of the fall and spring semester. 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 - 11:30 AM every-other Friday during the fall and spring semesters of each academic year.
HESC 494 Practicum
The Student Health and Counseling Center will be accepting HESC 494 practicum students during the fall and spring semesters. Practicum students earn their hours by attending bi-weekly PHUN meetings on Fridays from 10:00-11:30am and outreach events throughout the semester. Practicum students have the opportunity to be part of every aspect of program planning. PHUN is a great way to apply all that you are learning in the health science courses. To apply, fill out this application and return it to the front desk of the Student Health and Counseling Center by Sunday, February 2, 2014. If you have any questions, please contact Kerri Boyd
