Peer Health University Network
What is the 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.
"By advocating and embodying healthy lifestyle choices, PHUN inspires our diverse Titan community to work towards a healthier tomorrow."
What types of activities does the PHUN plan?
PHUN is involved in a number of educational and outreach activities on campus. The PHUN Hut can be found on campus 5 days a week. At the Hut CSUF students are be exposed to health related topics such as financial health, sexual health, alcohol safety, prescription drug abuse, nutrition, and stress/sleep throughout the year. Other events include Fullerton Flu Fighters, Nightmare on PHUN Street, free Nutrition workshops, and the annual CSUF 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. 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. For more information about joining PHUN, contact Patrick Avendano, PHUN President, or Valerie Romo, the PHUN Vice President.
HESC 494 Practicum
The Student Health and Counseling Center will accept HESC 494 practicum students during the fall and spring semesters. Practicum students earn their hours by attending weekly PHUN meetings, staffing the PHUN Hut, and staffing health 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 learn in the health science major. To apply, fill out this application and return it to the front desk of the Student Health and Counseling Center. If you have any questions, please contact Kerri Boyd.
