The Wellness & Health Action Team

The Wellness and Health Action Team (WHAT) is a team of seven undergraduate peer health educators in the Health Promotion Department at the Center for Student Health and Counseling (SHAC). WHAT staff has the opportunity to talk with their peers about health and wellness topics that directly influence their academic and personal success. In Health Promotion, our goals revolve around a special IDEA. Our goals are to: 

  • Inform the Portland State community about relevant health topics and available resources;
  • Develop engaging programs on campus to promote healthy decision-making;
  • Empower students to utilize accessible strategies to achieve long-term health;
  • Advocate for change in campus policies that facilitate student wellness and success. 
As peer health educators, we are committed to making Portland State a healthier campus for everyone to enjoy. We offer a number of resources to our community:
