Wellness Ambassadors

The Wellness Ambassadors are a passionate and skilled group of peer educators that work towards promoting health, prevention, and well-being for the Clark Community. Wellness Ambassadors are trained through the Certified Peer Education training developed by the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA). After becoming Certified Peer Educators, they develop campus initiatives, campaigns, or programming in areas of wellness that they are passionate about and where they see a need for the Clark community. If you are interested in becoming a Wellness Ambassador, please email ebeachy@clarku.edu.
