What do the Health & Wellness Advocates Do?
Health & Wellness Advocates act as a resource for student health related issues and concerns. Health & Wellness Advocates serve as educators of other students regarding Winona State University’s seven dimensions of wellness, in addition to sharing information, prevention strategies, and referring students to other wellness resources on, and off, campus.
Advocates are Certified Peer Educators through the BACCHUS network, as well as certified in First Aid and CPR. They are trained in several Health & Wellness topic areas and share their knowledge through teaching information to classes, clubs, or teams on campus, as requested

My favorite memory of the Health & Wellness Advocate club was feeling like I was a part of something that made a difference on campus. My experience as a Health & Wellness advocate was great. I wish I would have been a part of the club earlier in my college career. It provided me with so many great opportunities to network with the WSU staff and my peers. I was also able to grow as a leader and a role model on campus!
